Is next M25 closure set to be in “peak holiday season”?

The M25 is set to shut again in August as a part of the £317 million project to improve the areas between Junction 9 and 10.

Roadworks will take place during ‘peak holiday season’ according to Senior Project Manager Jonathan Wade from National Highways – and is the third of five scheduled weekend closures over the next 12 months.

There was an M25 closure last weekend to allow concrete beams for a new bridge to be installed. Following this, a new gantry will be put in place, says the RAC.

In March, the first planned closure of the M25 took place, so that the Clearmont Bridleway Bridge could be demolished and a new gantry system put in its place.

The motoring agency is working with transport operators and emergency services, as well as ports and airports to try and minimise any disruption.

“The next one is scheduled for August,” Wade said. “That’s still to be confirmed, but… at that time, you’re obviously into peak holiday season.’

However, following the announcement, a spokesperson for National Highways said: “Any future closure dates are yet to be confirmed and any that are announced are subject to change.”
