Dartford Crossing Traffic at Standstill Following Earlier Accident, Four-Mile Tailback Reported

Traffic on the approach to the Dartford Crossing is at a standstill, with a four-mile tailback stretching back from the crossing itself. The cause of the delay is an earlier accident that occurred around 3:30pm this afternoon.

According to National Highways, the anti-clockwise left-hand tunnel at the Dartford route, on the A282 northbound between J1a and J31, was temporarily closed due to the crash. However, the damaged vehicles have since been cleared and the tunnel has been reopened.

Despite the tunnel being back in operation, drivers can expect to face delays of over an hour as they make their way through the four-mile queue. Thankfully, there have been no reports of any injuries resulting from the accident.

Motorists are advised to plan their journeys accordingly and to seek alternate routes if possible. Stay tuned for further updates on the situation at the Dartford Crossing.
