Motorway closures of the main roads in Kent can cause plenty of disruption for motorists attempting to travel across the county.

With more people on the roads at weekends, the potential to come to a standstill is much greater – especially if there's an accident.

Those sort of incidents can't be planned for, but scheduled road closures offer drivers a chance to at least plan their route.

Several closures are set to be in place this weekend mainly along the M20 and in the early hours of the morning.

If you are set to be travelling along these areas at that sort of time, then take note of what diversions will be in place.
