M25 closure Friday 12 to Monday 15 July

The next next weekend closure will take place from 9pm on Friday 12 and the opening time on Monday 15 is no later than 6am.

Delays are expected - only drive this area route if your journey is essential.

Diversion routes will be in place, but drivers should use another route, travel on a different day or use another form of transport.

The full carriageway (both sides) of the M25 will be closed in both directions.

NOTE: The stretch which is closing is different from last time.

It is from Junction 10 for Wisley through to Junction 11 for Chertsey. The previous closure was between Wisley and Junction 9 for Leatherhead.

The diversion route is also different from last time.

This is the third planned weekend full closure of the M25 between junctions 9 and 11.

Other closures will take place later this year. National Highways have promised to give everyone four weeks’ notice.

News In Brief

Red Sea conflict contributes to UK manufacturing growth slowdown

With freight vessels taking the longer route around the southern tip of Africa, thus avoiding the Red Sea route to the Suez Canal, British manufacturers have seen activity growth slow last month from May's 22-month high.

The ongoing disruption to shipping in the Red Sea - caused by attacks on cargo ships by Yemen's Houthi militants - contributed to lower demand from overseas customers, a survey by S&P Global showed Monday 1 July.

S&P Global's UK Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index dropped to 50.9 in June from 51.2 in May. The final reading was lower than 51.4 in the provisional June data.

S&P said the broad picture was positive, with output and new orders both rising, but employment fell, delivery times lengthened and manufacturers' input costs rose at the fastest pace since January 2023.

While output and overall new orders grew at close to their fastest pace in two years, export orders fell for a 29th successive month, due to the shipping delays and high freight costs.

Yemen's Houthi militants are an Iran-aligned group who say the attacks are in solidarity with Palestinians in the war between Israel and militant Islamist group Hamas
