A section of the A13 between the A128 junction (Orsett Cock roundabout) and the A1014 junction (Stanford-le-Hope) will be closed this weekend.
The closure takes place from 9pm on Friday 4 September until 5am on Monday 7 September. Traffic will be diverted via the A1013 Stanford Road.
During the closure, access to and out of the Linford Household Waste and Recycling Centre (the tip) is through Buckingham Hill Road at the Linford end only.
Although there is less traffic at the moment, measures will be put in place to help keep local traffic on the move.
The north end of Buckingham Hill Road will be closed, with access remaining open from the Linford end for users of the tip and businesses based along Buckingham Hill Road.
Orsett Road, Horndon will also be closed between High Road and Victoria Road, and there will be a temporary one-way system in Gordon Road and Victoria Road, Horndon.
Visitors must access the tip from the Linford end of Buckingham Hill Road, and then also exit towards Linford. Traffic will be able to travel both ways along Butts Lane and Waltons Hall Road.
