Progress report

Public consultation

In January and February 2017, we held a public consultation to gather feedback on proposed plans to improve junction 25 on the M25. Information was available via our website, at public libraries and events across the area.

We presented two options for consideration:

  • Option 1 – extra lanes on roundabout and widen the A10 southbound approach
  • Option 2 – extra lanes on roundabout, widen the A10 southbound approach and M25 approaches, and provide free-flow left turn

Responses to public consultation:

  • 92% agreed that there was a need for improvement overall
  • when asked about key concerns relating to the junction improvements most conerns were around congestion (95%), construction impacts (81%), and road safety (80%)
  • 77% supported Option 2 over Option 1

The preferred route is Option 2

Following an in depth analysis of all your feedback, we will now proceed with Option 2.

This will improve journey times through the junction and allow more capacity on the exit slip roads; reducing the likelihood of traffic queuing back onto the M25, particularly into the Holmesdale Tunnel, delivering major safety improvements. You can view our visualisation outlining the preferred route.

What’s next

We will work closely with key stakeholders including Transport for London, Enfield Council, Broxbourne Borough Council and Hertfordshire County Council to develop Option 2, making sure that it complements other highway improvements in the area.

A public exhibition will take place early in 2018 to provide you with more information about the scheme. We will update this page nearer the time with more details.

We will take the scheme through the necessary planning and statutory procedures and, subject to these, we aim to complete the scheme and open for traffic in 2022 to 2023.

Why we need this scheme

Junction 25 is a nationally and regionally important road, connecting the M25 with the A10. Up to 6,300 vehicles per hour currently travel through the junction 25 roundabout at peak times, causing congestion and regular delays.

The A10 southbound approach into the junction is also a congestion hotspot in Broxbourne.

Aims

Through this scheme, we aim to:

  • reduce congestion and delays at junction 25 between the M25 and the A10
  • increase capacity by widening both the roundabout and the A10 southbound approach
  • redesign the roundabout to improve safety and traffic flow
  • support future traffic demands, enabling development and economic growth
  • maintain access for pedestrians and cyclists and improve conditions where possible
  • minimise the environmental effects of this scheme on local air quality and noise
