    Essentially, the lights on the M20 and slip roads are the responsibility of Highways England, and those on the roundabout those of Kent Highways. I've contacted both, and have had the below response from Highways England today, saying they should be fixing at least some of the slip road lights on Monday. Progress I hope!
