A13 roadworks

Widening the A13

Preparation work is underway to widen the A13 from 2 to 3 lanes in both directions between the A128 (Orsett Cock roundabout) and the A1014 (The Manorway, Stanford-le-Hope).

The newly widened section of road will join up with the existing 3-lane section of the A13 to the west of the A128, providing a continuous 3-lane road in both directions between the M25 and Stanford-le-Hope.

As part of the work, 4 bridges will be replaced, the Orsett Cock roundabout will be widened and new traffic lights will be installed to help manage vehicle flows. Public bridges will be built and opened before the old bridges are demolished.

Improving the A13 will boost the local economy, helping businesses to increase productivity, reduce costs and create more jobs – read more about why this work is needed.

We are making the A13 safer by laying a new low-noise road surface, and improving lighting, visibility, barriers and drainage. We've also been working hard at caring for the environment.

What's happening now – September 2018

Preparation work will continue throughout the autumn and winter. This work is taking place mainly away from the road or overnight, so the effect on road users will be minimal.

All works listed in the table below will be completed overnight, between 10pm and 5am.

Stanford Road junction with Buckingham Hill Road

The junction between Stanford Road and Buckingham Hill Road is currently being improved, with traffic signals being installed for safety and a better flow of vehicles.

This work began in February 2018 and is planned to be completed in late 2018.

It is separate from the main A13 widening work and is led by a private developer, with our guidance.
