Drivers have been left fuming after long journeys this morning.
One driver took more than an hour to drive from Worcester Park to the Fountain roundabout in New Malden where traffic started to ease.
Cars were desperately trying to take shortcuts through back routes to avoid the jam.
On Twitter, 213 Bus Diaries said this morning: "Traffic simply not moving in Worcester Park. 500 yds in 40mins, nothing in last 10. Why is noone interested in schemes to ease these jams?"
There were also delays between New Malden and Chessington on the A3 due to a broken down vehicle on the hard shoulder.
