Major Route to Experience Overnight Closures for Essential Maintenance Work

Overnight closures are scheduled to take place on a major route for a period of two weeks, causing potential disruptions for commuters and travelers. The closures will occur on the London-bound carriageway between Junction 2 of the M2, located near Cuxton, and the A2 Darenth junction with the M25, near Dartford.

These closures are necessary for essential maintenance work to be carried out. Starting from Monday, July 8, the affected route will be closed from 9pm to 6am on weekdays until Friday, July 12. The closures will then resume on Monday, July 15, and continue until Friday, July 19.

The maintenance work will include resurfacing at various locations, replacement of lighting, litter picking, and vegetation clearance. In addition, workers will be removing any debris and old traffic management equipment, as well as sweeping the carriageway.

To minimize the impact on traffic, a diversion route has been put in place and can be viewed online. However, drivers are advised to plan their journeys accordingly and allow for extra travel time due to the closures.

National Highways, the organization responsible for maintaining the route, has urged drivers to be patient and understanding during this necessary maintenance work. The safety and smooth functioning of the road is of utmost importance and these closures are vital in ensuring its upkeep.
