Attention Drivers: Dartford Crossing To Close for Maintenance Work Throughout June

Attention all drivers! Prepare for some changes in your commute between Kent and Essex as the Dartford Crossing will be closed for maintenance works throughout the month of June.

The closure of the Dartford Crossing is necessary for essential repairs to be made to key electrical equipment in the east tunnel and to repaint the steelwork on a nearby bridge. This will help protect it from corrosion and ensure the safety of all drivers.

The closures will take place during weeknights from Monday, June 3 to Friday, June 21. The A282 northbound carriageway, between M25 junction 2 and junction 1a, will be closed from 10pm to 5.30am Monday to Thursday and 11pm to 6am on Fridays. Meanwhile, the Dartford East Tunnel will be closed from 9pm to 5.30am Monday to Thursday and 9.30pm to 6am on Fridays.

Weekend closures are also scheduled for maintenance on both northbound tunnels at the crossing. On Saturday, June 8, from 8.30pm to 5am, both tunnels will be closed to allow for necessary repairs.

But the maintenance doesn’t end there. From Monday, June 24 to Friday, June 28, the Dartford East Tunnel will continue to be closed on weeknights from 9pm to 5.30am Monday to Thursday and 9.30pm to 6am on Fridays.

These closures are all part of National Highways’ extensive maintenance programme to ensure the safety and reliability of the Dartford Crossing for all drivers.

To avoid any delays, drivers are advised to plan ahead and allow extra time for their journeys. Please also follow the designated traffic management and diversion routes in place.

Let’s all work together to keep our roads safe and reliable. Thank you for your cooperation.
