The anti-clockwise carriageway between Junction 23 for South Mimms and Junction 22 for London Colney has reopened, Highways England has reported.

The agency says one lane remains closed “for the last bit of repairs to be completed” but delays have cleared.

On Twitter, @HighwaysEAST tweeted: “#M25 J23-J22 anti-clockwise 1 lane (of 4) needs to remain closed for barrier work. These works will take a few days to complete. No delays.”
