THE DARTFORD bridge will be closed to motorists overnight on Saturday (October 8th) to move a generator.
The size and weight of the generator means that the components will be conveyed in two loads travelling together with a police escort.
They are expected to leave Littlebrook Power Station at 10pm on Saturday (8/10) and will take around six hours to reach Tilbury Docks.
Traffic will be diverted through the Dartford tunnel.
Specialist contactor Abnormal Load Engineering has worked in consultation with the Highways Agency and the police to plan the route of the two loads, which will join the motorway at junction 1A and leave at junction 30.
