Blackwall Tunnel chaos expected after QE2 bridge closure

By Rob Virtue on December 23, 2013 1:30 PM |


Drivers should expect queues at the Blackwall Tunnel on Monday after the Dartford bridge was closed due to high winds.

And the problem is exacerbated by the continuing closure of the southbound stretch of the A12 Blackwall Tunnel Northern Approach due to emergency works.

The tunnels at Dartford are open, taking traffic both ways, but queues are building up on the M25.

The bridge is set to reopen at 4am on Christmas Eve. Winds of around 70 miles per hour are expected in coastal areas on Monday.
