The Dartford-Thurrock River Crossing, commonly known as the Dartford Crossing and until 1991 the Dartford Tunnel, is a major road crossing of the River Thames in England, carrying the A282 road between Dartford in Kent in the south and Thurrock in Essex in the north. It consists of two bored tunnels and the cable-stayed Queen Elizabeth II Bridge. The only fixed road crossing of the Thames east of Greater London, it is the busiest estuarial crossing in the United Kingdom, with an average daily use of over 130,000 vehicles. It opened in stages: the west tunnel in 1963, the east tunnel in 1980 and the bridge in 1991. The crossing, although not officially designated a motorway, is considered part of the M25 motorway's route, using the tunnels northbound and bridge southbound. Described as one

  • Als Dartford Crossing wird die Über- bzw. Unterquerung der Themse im Verlauf der Londoner Ringautobahn M25 östlich von London bezeichnet. Sie besteht aus zwei Tunneln und einer Schrägseilbrücke, die Dartford in Kent am Südufer mit Grays in Essex am Nordufer verbinden. Dartford Crossing ist der letzte Straßenübergang über die Themse vor deren Mündung in die Nordsee. (de)

The crossing, although not officially designated a motorway, is considered part of the M25 motorway's route, using the tunnels northbound and bridge southbound. Described as one of the most important road crossings in Britain, it suffers from heavy traffic and congestion. The crossing's development started in the late 1930s, but was interrupted due to the Second World War and resumed in the 1950s. The original tunnel catered for a single lane of traffic in each direction, but rising traffic levels required the second tunnel to be built. The M25 connected to the tunnels at both ends when completed in 1986, and this increased traffic put pressure on the tunnels' capacity. A Private Finance Initiative scheme was started in 1988 to build the bridge. The combined crossing now handles four lanes of traffic in each direction. The crossing had always been tolled, and from 1 April 2003 this became a charge, though since 2008 it has been free from 10 pm to 6 am. An automatic number plate recognition charging scheme named the "Dart Charge" began in November 2014. As a result, the booths on the Kent side were removed and the charge is now only payable online. A residents' scheme is available, offering discounts for people living near the crossing. (en)
  • De Dartford - Thurrock River Crossing (of de Dartford Crossing) is een belangrijke kruising voor wegverkeer over de Theems in Engeland. De kruising verbindt Dartford (aan de zuidzijde van de rivier) met Thurrock (aan de noordzijde) met behulp van twee tunnels en de Queen Elizabeth II Bridge, een 137 meter hoge tuibrug. Voor de opening van de brug was de kruising bekend als de Dartford Tunnel. De kruising is onderdeel van de M25, de ringweg rondom Londen. Per dag maken ongeveer 150.000 voertuigen gebruik van de kruising. De kruising werd geopend in 1963 met een enkele tunnel. In 1980 werd een tweede tunnel geopend. De brug werd gebouwd ten oosten van de twee tunnels en geopend in 1991.Verkeer in zuidelijke richting maakt gebruik van de vier rijstroken op de brug. Verkeer in Noordelijke richting maakt gebruik van de twee tunnels met ieder twee rijstroken.In geval van slecht weer of harde wind wordt de brug gesloten en moet het verkeer in beide richtingen gebruikmaken van de tunnels. De kruising ligt 25 kilometer ten oosten van het centrum van Londen, maar slechts 3 kilometer buiten de grenzen van Groot-Londen. Het zuidelijke einde bevindt zich in de Borough of Dartford in het graafschap Kent, het noordelijke deel valt binnen de Thurrock unitary authority, voorheen onderdeel van het graafschap Essex. De kruising is een grote flessenhals in het regionale wegennetwerk omdat het de meest oostelijke kruising over de Theems is. Bij verkeersongevallen of slecht weer ontstaan al snel verkeersopstoppingen. De dichtstbijzijnde kruisingen met de Theems zijn de Woolwich car ferry en de Blackwall Tunnel, beide ruim binnen East London. De voorgestelde tussen deze twee kruisingen en de Dartford Crossing werd in 2004 in voorbereiding genomen maar werd in 2008 afgeblazen. De is een voorstel voor een kruising, waarschijnlijk een tunnel, ten oosten van de Dartford crossing. (nl)
  • 达特福德跨河道路是英国一个由两条隧道和一座桥梁组成的横跨泰晤士河的公路桥隧组合,是跨泰晤士河的主要公路交通通道,承载英国A282一级公路。(英文名:Dartford Crossing或Dartford-Thurrock River Crossing)南端终点位于英国肯特郡达特福德,北端终点位于英国埃塞克斯郡瑟罗克。1991年之前称为“达特福德隧道”。 它由两条隧道和斜拉桥女王伊丽莎白二世大桥组成。它是泰晤士河大伦敦以东段上唯一的固定式公路跨河通道,平均日车流量达13万台次。该跨河道路分阶段开放:1963年西隧道通车,1980年东隧道通车,1991年女王伊丽莎白二世大桥通车。虽然这个跨河道路未被官方定为高速公路,但它被很多人认为是英国M25高速公路的一部分。北向车流使用隧道,南向车流使用桥梁。有人称之为“英国最重要的公路交通节点之一”,交通拥挤。 该跨河道路的规划始于20世纪30年代末,但由于第二次世界大战而中断,并于20世纪50年代继续进行。其中第一条隧道为单向2车道。后随着交通流量的提升,又修建了修建第二条隧道。1986年建成的英国M25高速公路分别从隧道两端与隧道相连,这大大增加了隧道的交通压力。1988年,该跨河道路启动了有私人融资参与的桥梁规划。桥隧全部完工后,该跨河道路总共拥有双向8车道。 这个跨河道路一直是收费公路。2003年4月1日,改为单向收费。从2008年开始,从晚上10点到早上6点免费。2014年11月,全面改用不停车收费,官方称为“飞镖收费”(Dart Charge),同时取消了人工收费,仅接受网上支付。达特福德跨河道路附近居民使用该路收费优惠。 (zh)
