Motorists are being warned to expect major delays in the morning on the M25 northbound out of Kent towards the Dartford Crossing. Urgent repair work is needed on three lanes and the hard shoulder at junction 31 following a serious traffic accident last night which caused long delays.
Motorists are being asked to monitor travel reports and plan their journeys accordingly as the works will take several hours.
