2230hrs: Motorists planning to use the Dartford Crossing are being advised of possible delays due to gale-force winds which could reach 60mph.
Kent Police said the QEII Bridge would be closed from 22:00 GMT until at least Thursday morning’s peak period.
Clockwise traffic, which normally uses the bridge across the Thames, will use the east bore of the Dartford Tunnel.
Anti-clockwise traffic was diverted to the west bore from 20:30 GMT.
The QEII Bridge had to be closed for several hours on Tuesday due to the high winds which caused widespread disruption across south-east England.
