Broken down lorry causes Dartford Crossing rush hour chaos
MOTORISTS are facing long delays at the Dartford Crossing this evening (July 5).
Drivers travelling into Kent across the Dartford Bridge from Essex face queues of more than 7 miles.
The delay was caused by a broken down lorry, which blocked one lane of the bridge at around 4pm.
Although the broken down vehicle has now been cleared, the queues remain.
Meanwhile, for motorists travelling out of Kent using the Dartford Tunnel, queues are equally as bad.
They currently stretch back beyond junction 3 at the Swanley Interchange and slow-moving traffic is nearly back as far as Orpington.
