Lack of safety warning

I regularly travel on the A2 and A2050 between Faversham and Canterbury. During the morning peak period it is quite common for traffic to be queued back from the A2050 onto the A2. Visibility when approaching this junction is not particularly good due to bends in the road and traffic speeds are high on this section of road, much of the traffic being heavy lorries and traffic is often required to slow suddenly due to the queuing traffic. I suggest that a sign is needed on the A2 before the junction warning of queuing traffic at busy times. Ideally an electronic sign which comes on when queues on the A2050 are reaching back close to the junction but even fixed signs on the A2 would be a useful warning. I feel it must be only a matter of time before a serious accident happens in this area.
Thank you for contacting National Highways about congestion on the A2050/A2 junction.
Thank you for your suggestion of installing a sign to warn A2 traffic of congestion at the junction, I have raised this with our safety team and they have said that this will be put forward as a safety study.
Kind regards National Highways
