M25 Traffic Delays: Dartford Tunnel Closure Causes Two-and-a-Half-Mile Queue

Traffic is backed up on the M25 as essential maintenance has caused the closure of one of the Dartford Tunnels. This has resulted in two-and-a-half-mile queues and an extra 30 minutes added to drivers’ journeys.

According to National Highways, the west tunnel at the Dartford Crossing is currently closed, along with two lanes on the anticlockwise M25. This closure stretches from Junction 1A for the A206 in Dartford to Junction 31 for Lakeside.

Drivers are advised to use the east tunnel, but should expect delays due to the congestion. The closure is necessary for maintenance works, as stated by National Highways on their social media platform X.

They added, “Traffic is still able to use the east tunnel. There is currently approximately 2.5 miles of congestion on approach, resulting in delays of 30 minutes above the usual journey times.”
