Southbound M2 approaching Footbridge
The M2 is 25.7 miles long and acts as a bypass of the section of the A2 road which runs through the Medway Towns, Sittingbourne and Faversham. It is the only motorway in England that does not intersect with any other motorway at a junction.

The initial section of the motorway (junctions 2 to 5) was opened by the then Transport Minister Ernest Marples on 29 May 1963, with the remainder being constructed in 1965. It was originally planned that the M2 would be extended to London and Dover, making it the main route between London and the channel ports, but this extension never materialised due to a lack of traffic demand.
