Cheers Tony,
                   reading through the list,it seems these closures are a mix of lane closures and full nightime closures,no mention of it affecting the M25.....but that might be a little surprise that those teewats at the Highways Agency have overlooked,because as we all know that their ability to organise a piss up in a brewery is beyond their remit! Will keep an eye on today's M25 antics as Saturday's are a PITA usually and if it turns into chaos,then there is an ABS breakfast meet tomorrow on the Essex side which I usually attend when possible,so that could be an alternative for me if it's going to be a struggle Kent side :-\ Personally I think because as we have got to be there around 9.30 then I would think what ever is happening there shouldn't be to much of a problem :-\

Honestly guys, that time of the morning should be fine for everyone.

Nobody moves much on the A2 until after 11am on a Sunday anyway as that is when Bluewater opens.

Ian beat me to it.
The A2 will be the diversion, so traffic will be heavier than normal. But that's unlikely to affect your journey times on a Sunday morning.

 >:( >:( >:( >:(   just back frm a trip to Southend . .   taking some stuff in doors  . .

noticed a pool of coolant forming under front of car  . . .  Bol*oc*$

Looks like water pump failure as forming on top of sump below crank pulley & then

dripping down onto floor. Also have a rumbling sound from front of engine (water pump area)

Just what I needed the day before a meet >:( >:(

Will post up how this will affect my attending  asap     :'( :'( :'(

That is the only sensible route unless the A2 is shut.
