The M25 in Surrey is currently experiencing a significant disruption due to a multiple-vehicle collision, leading to the closure of the anti-clockwise lanes between Junction 8 (Reigate) and Junction 6 (Godstone).

To mitigate the impact on travel and provide alternative routes, traffic management authorities have established a diversion route for motorists affected by the closure. Road users travelling anti-clockwise are advised to follow the hollow square diversion symbol displayed on road signs. The recommended diversion route is as follows:

  1. From the M25 Junction 8 exit slip roundabout at ‘Reigate Hill Interchange,’ take the third exit onto A217 towards Reigate.
  2. Continue on A217 and then follow A25 towards Redhill.
  3. At the A25/A23 roundabout in Redhill, turn right onto A23 heading towards Gatwick.
  4. At the subsequent roundabout, take the left turn onto A25 directed towards Godstone.
  5. Proceed through Godstone on A25, maintaining direction at the mini roundabout.
  6. Rejoin the M25 at Junction 6 ‘Godstone Interchange’ towards Sevenoaks.

Motorists planning to travel through this section of the M25 are urged to allow extra time for their journey, consider rerouting, or even postpone their travel plans if possible, to avoid the affected area. The closure and the suggested diversion aim to alleviate congestion and ensure the safety of both the emergency responders attending the scene and the public.
