Work to improve The Manorway, Stanford-le-Hope – making the road quieter for use by heavy goods vehicles – is set to get underway soon.
The joint scheme sees Thurrock Council and DP World London Gateway working together to repair and replace the substructure of the road and add a new quieter surface to help dampen down the noise of traffic.
Works will take place overnight for 16 nights from 1 June with road closures from 9pm until 5am on weeknights with diversions in place during these times. The road will remain open during the day and at weekends. The council apologises for any inconvenience caused to residents by these works.
Cllr Ben Maney, Cabinet member for highways, said: "This work will bring huge improvements to the road and for residents living nearby.
"The work has been part funded by DP World London Gateway and by working together to carry out structural and surface improvements at the same time we can limit the disruption caused by works while making the best possible improvements to the road."
