Embankment strengthening works – M25 5-6 clockwise

Highways England is carrying out works on the M25 clockwise carriageway between Junction 5 Sevenoaks to Junction 6 Godstone, starting on Monday 29 June and due to finish by November. These works are to strengthen the embankment.  

  • Phase 1 - Piling works: Access from M25 for approximately five weeks, from June to July. Some work will take place during the day and there will also be some overnight works.
  • Phase 2 – Verge works: Access from M25 for approximately seven weeks, from August to September. The work will take place during the day.
  • Phase 3 – Embankment earth and drainage works: Access from Water Lane, for approximately nine weeks from August to the end of October. No closures are required, but traffic on Water Lane will be busier.

Residents in the area are being sent a letter about the works. The initial overnight works may generate some noise, but noise levels will be monitored and the work carried out in a way that minimises disturbance as much as possible.

If you have any questions about this work please contact the Highways England Customer Contact Centre on 0300 123 5000, available 24 hours a day.
