EMERGENCY repairs were made to a stretch of the M25 after the road ‘buckled’ this weekend.

Part of the motorway near Junction 23 (Potters Bar) clockwise was reopened this morning (Monday) after emergency repairs were made on Sunday.

Crews worked through the night to fix a ridge that appeared in the road.

It reopened at around 7.30am.

A statement released by the Highways Agency on Sunday said: “It is too early to say exactly what caused the road to deteriorate in such a manner but right now the top priority is to complete the resurfacing work, which is at an advanced stage, so that the M25 can be re-opened to traffic before the Monday morning rush.”
