M25 ACW Approaching J2

Widening, new lighting and gantries along this section of the M25. The lane drop is for the A2 exit, lanes 2, 3 and 4 for Dartford and the tunnel. Taken 1st October 2008. The gantries on the M25 are clear enough but I think those installed as part of the corresponding work on the A2 (westbound) approach to J2 are clumsy and reminiscent of a badly organised desktop in Windows! I'll try to get a picture soon to illustrate my point.

Junction 2. There is also a services sign here, which below has a 'New services now open' sign on it. I wonder how long thats been there?

This is how an ideal layout would look. The current improvement by the HA involves freeflow between Dartford and Dover but this version has every movement freeflow as well as maintaining full access to and from the A225 for all movements.

Notice the lane drop signs on the slip road.

The new slip road is solid with stationary traffic. These cars at the back of the queue will have a long wait before joining the A282. The weather was rather misty so the new viaduct isn't shown to its full potential in this shot.
