Overnight closures to affect M25 tonight

ROAD users have been advised the M25 junction 23 anti-clockwise entry slip road at South Mimms will be closed overnight tonight (Friday).

The junction 22 anti-clockwise entry and exit slip roads will also be closed overnight for 11 nights from tonight until January 23.

The closures will be between 10pm and 5am each night.

During these times there will be a contraflow system in operation on the anti-clockwise carriageway.

Highways chiefs said the closures are part of a scheme to widen the M25 from three lanes to four between junctions 21a and 23, and is to allow for safety barriers on the anti-clockwise carriageway to be realigned, to prepare the carriageways for traffic to run in three lanes in both directions.

Work will then start on upgrading the central reservation.

A spokeswoman said: “The work is taking place overnight when traffic flows are lowest, to minimise disruption.
