Road users are warned that due to an emergency exercise there will be an overnight closure.

The northbound A282 at the Dartford Crossing will be closed overnight on Saturday May 10.

The closure, between junction 2 (A2) and junction 31 (A1306), will be in place between 10pm Saturday and 4am Sunday.

Both tunnels are being closed for an emergency exercise, which will involve emergency services and tunnel staff.

This means no traffic can use the Dartford Crossing northbound, however the southbound Queen Elizabeth II bridge will remain open to southbound traffic.
