Criticism has been made of the crossing’s new layout

A petition created last year asking for a review of the Dartford Crossing’s current layout has just over a month left before it runs out.

‘An independent investigation into the new layout at Dartford river crossing.’ currently has more than 16,000 signatures, and is due to run out on February 11.

The petition complains about delays it believes the crossing has caused.

It reads: “The new, redesigned layout of the Dartford river crossing is not working. There are perpetual tailbacks causing harm to all road users. There is currently no way to complain or give opinion on this.

“It’s a disgrace and needs to be looked into to assess its viability. It simply has become a farce.

“The hospital is potentially in harms way as Ambulances are unable to pass through the traffic chaos caused by the gridlock caused by the poor road management of Highways.”

Should the petition reach 100,000 signatures it will be discussed in parliament.
