M25 junctions 5 to 6 in Kent/Surrey

Work continues this week on an upgrade to the central reservation barrier along the M25 between junctions 5 (Sevenoaks) and 6 (Godstone), ahead of a major improvement project scheduled to start in the spring.

Narrow lanes and a 50mph speed limit are in place, with a free recovery service operating 24 hours a day. There will be additional lane and slip road closures as required, which will be carried out overnight when traffic flow is lowest.

A34 closed in both directions

Hampshire Police say that the A34 is likely to remain closed in both directions for most of the day as repairs are made to the road surface following a serious accident overnight.

It's understood that a transporter lorry hit the central reservation near Whitchurch in Hampshire, causing the cars it was carrying to fall onto both the north and south bound carriageways.

Police and Highways Agency staff have been at the scene since 11:10pm last night.

No one was hurt in the accident and no other vehicles are believed to have been involved.

Drivers hoping to use the A34 today are being advised to take alternative routes.
