Maidstone is a city in England.

Hitching out

North towards M 2/London/Gillingham

Junction 7 of the M 20 has a large lay-by area on the A249 headed North towards the M 2. Users have experienced VERY long wait times at this position, however.

A few KM further up this hill (Detling Hill) there is a second large lay-by but it is on quite a hill and a trucker has said how he thinks others wouldn't want to stop on such a steep incline.

South towards Dover/The Channel Tunnel

User Experiences

Brackers - Long wait of 3 hours at the roundabout of M20 and A249 bottom of Detling Hill headed North to M2. Return journey the next day and waited an hour and a half on Southern side of same roundabout. Seems like only local traffic. (August 2011)
