The A282 (also known as the Canterbury Way and often mistakenly as part of the M25) is a short length of road that spans the gap between the two ends of the M25 motorway and includes the Dartford Crossing across the River Thames between Essex and Kent in England. It completes the loop of the London Orbital by connecting junctions 2 and 31 of the M25, and is also part of the unsigned Euroroute E15. Its junctions are numbered as a continuation of the junction sequence of the M25. Although it is a continuation of the motorway and is a multi-lane dual-carriageway, it is classed as an all-purpose A road, not a motorway. As such, it provides a river crossing for all classes of road of traffic, without the restrictions that would apply if it were a motorway. A shuttle bus is provided free of charge for pedestrians and cyclists wishing to make the crossing.
