Alfred McAlpine reaches the final stages on the 220m, four span bridge over the A282 (M25) as subcontractor Cleveland Bridge lifts one of the last 90t beams in to place. Spanning the A282 between Junction 1a of the M25 and the start of the Dartford tunnel, the new £8.6M bridge passes over the toll plaza and under the QEII Bridge. These sections were placed during night time tunnel closures that were incorporated into the Highways Agency's maintenance programme run by Le Crossing.

The new bridge will be dedicated to a bus rapid transit system connecting a mixeduse development called the Bridge to the Bluewater shopping centre and rail services at Greenhithe, Gravesend and Ebbsfleet International. The project is being built as part of the infrastructure works for Prologis, which is developing The Bridge site.
