The QE2 Bridge has reopened after being closed for nearly seven hours.
High winds forced it to be shut for safety reasons at around 9.15am.
It eventually reopened at just after 4pm.
However, motorists are restricted to a speed of 30mph.
Officials say there is approximately three miles of queuing traffic on the M25 anti-clockwise heading towards Dartford.
Traffic travelling from Essex to Kent was earlier diverted via the right hand tunnel, while traffic from Kent to Essex travelled via the left hand tunnel.
