Massive Congestion Forecasted!


The stretch in Surrey closing this weekend typically carries between 4,000 and 6,000 vehicles per hour in each direction during key weekend hours, said National HIghways. 

Up to 270,000 vehicles pass through the junction that's being worked on each weekday, making it one of the busiest stretches of road in the UK.

Airports will be affected too...

For travelling to, from and between the UK's two busiest airports, Heathrow and Gatwick, they are expected to be affected as National Highways has warned it expects long delays. 

Ultra Low Emission Zone Update

More M25 Closures Planned

Drivers using the signed diversion route won't be subject to any Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) charges that may usually apply.

The Ultra Low Emission Zone will remain in force on all other routes in London across the weekend.

Further 3 closures for the M25 are planned for 3 upcoming weekends before September 2024. 

There will be no weekend closures in June.

The remaining closures will take place between July and the end of 2024.
