Monday 13th April 2020. The overnight closures would take place between 20:00 and 08:00 hours (maximum period).
The Order would come into force on 11 April 2020 and have a maximum duration of eighteen months.
Traffic affected by the closures would be diverted as follows:
1) West Tunnel closure: (scheduled, subject to change, 20th -25th April) all traffic would use the East Tunnel;
2) East Tunnel closure: (scheduled, subject to change, 13th -18th April) traffic would use the West Tunnel, with the exception of over-height vehicles which would be diverted clockwise around the M25;
3) A282 closure between Junction 1b and 31, including the roads described in b) and c) above: (scheduled, subject to change, 24th -28th April) traffic would be diverted using the A2, A102, and A13 (other than over-height vehicles which would be diverted as per 2)); and
4) for all other slip closures, the diversion would be to continue to the next possible junction and return.
The temporary closures and diversion routes would be clearly indicated by traffic signs when they are in operation during the works period.
