The M25 anti-clockwise will remain closed between junctions 27 (M11) and 26 (Waltham Abbey) until late this evening for repairs to the road surface following a lorry fire which broke out on the exit slip road of the latter junction at 4am today.
The lorry had been carrying wines, spirits, and car parts. Resurfacing work started shortly after 2pm, with repair work also needed to the nearby fencing.
There is a clearly signed diversion route in place, whereby drivers taking the M25 anti-clockwise follow the hollow square to take the M11 south to junction 4, then the A406 North Circular westbound to the A10 to re-join the M25 at junction 25. Drivers taking the M25 clockwise follow the hollow triangle to take this route in reverse.
