Progress report

Between November 2016 to January 2017, we held a public consultation to gather feedback on proposed plans to improve junction 28 on the M25. Following an in-depth analysis of the work done to date as well as your feedback, we will now proceed with Option 5F. Please read our leaflet to find out more information.

You can view the Consulation Report and the Scheme Assessment Report and all other related documentation on the consultation page.

What next?

A second public consultation will take place early in 2018, so you will have another opportunity to give your views and influence the developments of the design. We’ll let you know more about this nearer the time.

Why we need this scheme

We have identified a number of issues at the junction which are impacting on the local and regional economies and their ability to achieve their full potential. These include:
  • congestion and delay disrupting journeys on our road network and local roads
  • actual and significant perceived safety concerns connected to driver movements on the roundabout
  • resilience to incidents is poor, resulting in significant disruption and unreliable journey times
  • poor air quality
We reviewed this junction in our London Orbital and M23 to Gatwick Route Strategy Evidence Report, and this scheme was included in the March 2015 Road Investment Strategy. In response to this we developed our Delivery Plan which outlines the next steps for taking the scheme forward. This includes:
  • develop and assess a range of options to inform consultation with key stakeholders
  • engage more widely with local stakeholders
  • further develop proposals and assess traffic and environmental impacts
  • make recommendations on the preferred route
Our research shows that if we don’t improve junction 28 by 2037, we can expect:
  • increased congestion and lengthy queues, at least 5 times worse than at present
  • a 25% reduction in average speeds through the junction (excluding mainline M25 and A12)
  • widespread disruption following incidents
  • constraints on future development and growth opportunities
  • local air quality issues to deteriorate
We have drawn up a number of options to solve these issues. These are the options presented for you to comment on as part of the consultation.

Aims

We hope to achieve the following scheme objectives:
  • increase capacity and reduce congestion and delays by providing an improved link from M25 to A12
  • reduce the incident rate and resulting disruption by increasing the capacity of the roundabout
  • improve safety on the roundabout by reducing traffic levels and redesigning the existing layout
  • cater for future traffic demands to enable development and economic growth
  • minimise the impact on local air quality and noise by smoothing traffic flow
  • protect access for non-motorised users (pedestrians and cyclists) and improve conditions wherever possible/li>
