Calls to review roadworks layout
There were almost 50 accidents in just two months on a stretch of the M20 narrowed to two lanes while roadworks take place.
Highways England has faced calls to review its management of the London-bound roadworks between junction 9 and 8 in the face of complaints the lanes are too narrow.
Figures released by Highways England show between July 7 and September 5 there were 47 collisions of which 25 - more than half - involved a lorry and a car.
Highways England says none of the serious incidents were caused by the design of the traffic management road layout.
The £25m works have been introduced to provide a temporary solution to help avoid Operation Stack.
The temporary solution will allow for two-way travel on the London-bound carriageway in the event that the coastbound carriageway is required to manage port-bound freight after Brexit.
