Angry motorists are complaining about overnight works causing major delays at the Dartford Crossing.
One of the tunnels was closed last night – leaving many drivers trapped in Essex-bound traffic for around five hours.
A petiton calling for the government to order an inquiry into the ongoing problems has now reached 12,000 signatures.
The petition reads:
“Begin a public inquiry into the performance of the Northbound Dartford Crossing.
“Road users & hauliers have been suffering the incompetence of the ‘new & improved’ northbound Dartford River Crossing for too long. After the multi million pound improvement works were completed road users have had to bear the brunt of a botched scheme which shows no evidence of improvement.”
