M25 J5 Chevening Anti-clockwise TOTSO

View of the anti-clockwise M25 TOTSO at Chevening. Lanes 1 and 2 are for Dartford, Lanes 3 and 4 for the M26 and A21 south. Westbound M25 traffic can be seen joining from the right in the middle of the picture. SOX lighting still very evident here in January 2004. The horizontal reach of the columns was chopped by about 80% when the MA60 heads were replaced in 2007.

M25 J5 Eastbound A21-M26 Diverge

Zoom view of the eastbound A21 (South) and M26 split at Chevening. The left turn is very tight and rotates approx 270 degrees before joining the mainline A21 heading south towards the A25 exit for Sevenoaks and Hastings. The TOTSO M25 S to W slip can be also be seen curving around from the left and crossing the eastbound M26 to where it merges with the westbound M26 in the foreground.

M25 J5 Chevening A21-M25 N-W Diverge

The A21 splits for north and westbound M25 at J5. The curve to the right (M25 NORTH) follows the original alignment of the A21 Sevenoaks bypass from here for approximately 1 mile to where the A21 D2 section once terminated at at Polehill. Taken 9th January 2004 with the recently replaced SOX lighting still in place.

Idea for improving Chevening

M25 now straightened with no TOTSO. A21 to M26 slips added so Sevenoaks traffic can finally use the motorway to get to Maidstone.
