Dartford Crossing Closures: QE2 Bridge to Shut for Maintenance This Weekend

Motorists are advised to plan ahead as there will be multiple closures affecting the tunnels at the Dartford Crossing throughout this week, culminating in a full closure of the QE2 bridge over the weekend.

From Tuesday to Friday, the northbound east tunnel at the Dartford Crossing will be closed during the night for maintenance. On Saturday night, both the east and west tunnels will be closed from 9:30 PM to 5:00 AM.
