The abnormal load will cause delays

Eight transformers being moved from Littlebrook Power station are set to cause disruption on the Dartford Crossing this weekend.

The slow-moving, abnormal loads, will be using the crossing at around 9pm this Saturday.

During that time, traffic will be stopped for around 30 minutes.

After this weekend there are another seven trips expected, on various weekends in April and May.

Three dates have not been set for moving the transformers from the Dartford-power station.

The loads will enter the northbound A282 the wrong way, via the northbound exit slip road. They will travel northbound before then using the crossover from the northbound carriageway to the southbound, usually used when the tunnel is used for southbound traffic. The load will then exit the A282 at junction 1a using the southbound exit slip road.
