Traffic bulletin: Motorists urged to plan their journeys ahead of M25 weekend closures



National Highways is advising drivers using the M25 in Hertfordshire and Essex to plan ahead as there will be a number of weekend closures in March and April.

From the beginning of March, there will be several full weekend closures on and around M25 junction 25, as work begins to resurface and repaint road markings on the roundabout.

To do this as safely as possible, and to cause the least amount of disruption, the work will be carried out under full weekend closures beginning this Friday, 4 March.

The following roads and sections of the roundabout will be closed:


Date

Road Closure

Friday 4 March at 10pm to Monday 7 March at 5am Friday 18 March at 10pm to Monday 21 March at 5am.


  • The Holmesdale Tunnel exit slip

  • A10 southbound between Great Eastern Way and junction 25

  • The northern and eastern sections of the junction roundabout, from the M25 clockwise exit slip to the Holmesdale Tunnel exit slip


Friday 11 March at 10pm to Monday 14 March at 5am. Friday 25 March at 10pm to Monday 28 March at 5am. Friday 8 April at 10pm to Monday 11 April at 5am.


  • The M25 clockwise exit slip

  • A10 northbound between Bullsmoor Lane and junction 25

  • The southern and western sections of the junction roundabout, from the Holmesdale Tunnel exit slip to the M25 clockwise exit slip



There's never a good time to complete this type of work on a busy junction, and there will be some delays due to traffic in the area during the closures. Drivers are advised to plan and leave extra time for their journeys.
