A13 roadworks

Footpaths and bridleways

We must keep footpath and bridleway users a safe distance from construction sites. This includes walkers, cyclists and horse-riders.

Temporary closures

We have temporarily closed footpaths 12, 37 and 104 to make sure there's enough space to carry out construction works safely for the duration of the project. Although temporary, the closures will be long-term for the duration of the project.

Alternative routes are shown on each plan.

Horndon Road bridge – Bridleway 48

A new bridleway bridge will replace the existing Horndon Road bridge that links Horndon on the Hill with Stanford-le-Hope via Bridleway 48.

The new bridge will be lifted into place before the current bridge is closed, but both bridges are likely to be closed for one weekend while demolition works take place.

A minibus shuttle service will be provided so pedestrians and cyclists can continue to cross the A13 at this time. Cyclists will be able to take their bikes on the minibus.

The works will avoid school days – dates will be advertised in advance on these web pages.

Permanent changes

Once the construction work is complete, there will be permanent changes to the current arrangement of footpaths and bridleway in the area.

We are working with Thurrock’s Local Access Forum to make sure footpath users are kept informed of any changes.
