Chaotic Traffic and Multiple Incidents Cause Major Delays on M25 and Dartford Crossing

Chaotic traffic is causing major delays on the M25 and at the Dartford Crossing this evening, as two separate incidents have occurred.

According to National Highways, one of the Dartford tunnels is currently closed due to a van fire. This has caused significant congestion on the approach to the crossing, with delays of up to 45 minutes and approximately five miles of backed-up traffic stretching all the way back to Junction 3 on the M25.

In addition to the van fire, there is also a police incident causing further delays on the A282 and the M25 anticlockwise. The entry slip from the A2 London bound at Darenth Interchange has been closed by Kent Highways due to this incident. Motorists are advised to expect delays and allow extra time for their journeys.

According to a spokesperson for Kent Highways, all traffic is currently being held due to a crash involving three vehicles. Emergency services have been contacted for comment and updates will be provided as they become available.
