Accident at Dartford Crossing Causes Major Traffic Delays on M25

Traffic on the M25 is experiencing significant delays due to a recent accident at the Dartford Crossing. At approximately 11am, two vehicles collided on the anti-clockwise route between J1A A206 (Dartford) and J31 A1306 (Lakeside/Purfleet). As a result, one tunnel at the crossing has been shut down and only the east tunnel is currently open for use.

Thankfully, the damaged vehicles have been removed, but cleanup crews are still working to clear the area. As a result, the west tunnel remains closed, causing delays of up to 45 minutes. These delays have caused queues to stretch back four miles, causing frustration for commuters.

Thankfully, there were no reported injuries in the accident. However, drivers are advised to stay cautious and to listen to kmfm for any further travel updates. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and urge drivers to plan accordingly to avoid unnecessary delays.
