The M25 anticlockwise is closed in Hertfordshire after cracks were discovered in a bridge. Engineers are currently working on the structure between Junctions 21A and 20 near Kings Langley. But, repair work is likely to last into early afternoon (Wednesday 23rd March). The viaduct carries the M25 over the railway, Station Road, the River Gade and farmland. A Highways England spokesperson said: “Safety is Highways England’s top priority. During a routine inspection yesterday a minor crack was discovered on the Gade Valley Viaduct near to the M25 junction 20. “The closures are in place to allow repairs to be carried out as quickly as possible to stop the crack from growing and maintain safe journeys. “We would like to thank drivers in advance for their patience and reassure them that we will be working as hard as we can to reopen the M25 as soon as safely possible.” Drivers are being advised to plan their journeys and consider avoiding the area if possible.
