It appears the eastbound closure at the junction will mean drivers travelling from the direction of Heathrow towards Gatwick will be able to stay on the motorway with the exception of at J10 where they will divert around the roundabout. An official diversion route for westbound drivers travelling in the direction of Heathrow from Gatwick has not yet been made available.

National Highways further outlined: “Our diversion routes are designed to suit all vehicle types. We advise you not to use a sat-nav when following any of our diversions because there is a risk it could divert you down an unsuitable road or back onto the network when it is closed.”

The M25 was shut in May for the installation of a similar bridge in what was the second of five full weekend closures planned throughout 2024.
