Traffic Management April 2022

To All Hougham Residents

We have been asked by the Kent Resilience Team if we could circulate the message below to residents: –


Local communities should prepare for potential disruption on the roads.

With the P&O Ferries disrupted and when the weather conditions are poor, tourists and hauliers using cross-Channel services from Dover and Folkestone are being advised to allow extra time for their journey and to be prepared for long delays.

Traffic management is in place for cross-Channel freight traffic which must join the queue on the M20.  HGV drivers are advised that enforcement is in place across the Kent network to deal with queue jumping and you will be sent to the back of the queue.

Inevitably, this is having a major impact on local traffic. Local diversions are in place, but please allow extra time for your journey.  Arrangements are also in place to filter HGVs making local deliveries.


Welcome to the new Hougham website

We welcome both local residents and visitors to our new website.

We will be keeping the website up to date on a regular basis and we encourage our residents to get involved and send us any content you think would be useful.
