Overnight Closures and Repairs Planned for Dartford Crossing by National Highways

Overnight Repairs Scheduled for Dartford Crossing by National Highways

Commuters traveling through the Dartford Crossing this weekend should be aware of planned overnight closures for necessary repairs. According to National Highways, the QEII bridge, which connects Essex to Kent, will be closed for safety checks and maintenance.

The closures will occur overnight, with the bridge shutting down at 10pm tonight (January 13) and reopening at 5am tomorrow (January 14). During this time, traffic will be diverted through the east-bore tunnel, while the west tunnel will remain open as usual.

Additionally, the northbound carriageway, heading out of the county, will be closed overnight from 10:30pm tomorrow (January 14) until 5am Monday (January 15). This closure will affect the stretch between junction 2 and junction 1a, leading to Dartford, in order to allow National Highways to complete emergency repairs to the barrier.

For alternative routes, drivers can tune in to kmfm for regular traffic updates. A diversion will also be in place via the A2 coastbound, B255 northbound, and the A206 London-bound, before rejoining the A282 at junction 1a. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Stay safe on the roads.
