Princes Road Interchange

Princes Road Interchange was first built in 1963 when the A282 opened for the first Dartford Tunnel. It was much more important then than now as it was the junction for the A2. In 1972, the Second Dartford By-Pass opened and the A282 was extended to the Darenth Interchange. This moved the A2 south and the old road was renumbered A225 & A296. During the late 1980's works for the Dartford Bridge, this junction was made limited. That meant traffic from the South had to use J2 of the M25 to get to this junction. In 2006, Fastrack open and that added to the fun & games when this junction get jammed (and that is basically once a week). In 2014, a new McDonalds opened near the junction so even more traffic now uses the junction.
