Heavy traffic on A13 near Orsett Cock.
Long delays on A126 near West Thurrock.
There is slow moving traffic on the A282 anti clockwise heading towards the Dartford Crossing between J4 and the Tunnel. Highways England have advised they will be periodically halting traffic to prevent queuing in the tunnels. Expect delays and allow extra time for your journey.
The M25 in Essex is currently experiencing severe delays of 1 hour between J28 (A12) and the Dartford Crossing. This is due to a broken down HGV closing 2 lanes on the QE2 Bridge earlier. Recovery of the HGV is complete and all lanes on the bridge are now open again.
If you’re planning on using the Dartford Crossing southbound via the QE2 Bridge this afternoon of travel on the M25 clockwise in Essex please allow plenty of extra time for your journey. If possible, please consider alternative routes or delaying your journey until the traffic volumes have eased.
