Another day and another set of long queues at both the Dartford Crossing and in Greenwich around the Blackwall Tunnel approach.
Both have extensive delays though there doesn’t appear a clear reason beyond sheer weight of traffic.
In the past couple of weeks the Dartford crossing has been extremely poor for congestion when heading anti-clockwise. Even by its normal poor standards.
Is this partly due to ever more distribution depots being encouraged? Amazon have just opened a huge warehouse directly beside the M25, though I’m not entirely sure just how fully operational it is. The staff car park looks rather full mind.
Dartford Council have also approved yet more depots.
The queues in Dartford and the approach now seem to be pretty much all day, every day.
Will it settle back to the old “normal”? Is it holiday traffic that wil settle down once schools reopen? One to watch.
