The Lacton Interchange, found at the eastern end of the Ashford Bypass, is junction 10 of the M20.

The origins of the junction date from 1957, when the bypass opened as the A20. The other routes at this time were the A292 (the old A20 through Ashford) and the B2164 from Kennington, and it was a simple roundabout interchange.

The present junction is slightly southeast of this location, and dates from 1981, when the Ashford Bypass east of the A28 was upgraded to the M20.

Since then, the A2070 Willesborough Bypass, carrying trunk road traffic from Hastings and Romney Marsh, has also been plugged into the junction. Consequently, it is now considered to be overloaded - it contains full time traffic signals and was widened to three lanes around the roundabout in 2009. A proposed M20 J10A is planned to connect the M20 to the A2070 further east of here.
