We have been awarded a contract with Highways England to deliver improvements to the M25 Junction 25.

The improvement works, due to commence in January 2021, include an upgrade of the junction between the M25 and A10 at Cheshunt, providing greater capacity for traffic.

Other aspects of the improvement work to be delivered include:

  • widening of the M25 Junction 25 roundabout to four lanes
  • widening of the M25 eastbound diverge and providing a segregated left turn for A10 northbound traffic,
  • widening of the westbound M25 diverge,
  • widening of the A10 southbound entry to the roundabout,
  • providing improved shared use paths across junction 25

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.

On the award, Dave Brown, our Highways Director, said:

“This is another significant scheme for the South East of England and we’re delighted to have been awarded the package by Highways England under the Route to Market Regional Delivery Partnership.
“This scheme will reduce congestion and delays at junction 25 between the M25 and the A10 while also increasing capacity by widening both the roundabout and the A10 southbound approach.
“We boast a proud record of delivering complex highways projects across the UK and our approach has been recognised by industry leaders and stakeholders for creativity, added-value engineering and our principles of honesty and integrity.”

Dave added:

“We are looking forward to working in collaboration with Highways England and all stakeholders to successfully deliver this scheme.”
