Motorists advised of next phase of A13 roadworks

J. MURPHY & Sons Limited has announced that the next phase of planned works is to start, which will include a diversion of the A13/A1014 junction for resurfacing work.

On Friday 30th August a series of signposted diversions will commence covering a one week period. The following three diversions will necessitate closures of slip roads for a period of 24 – 48 hours:

The Southend-bound off slip will be diverted from 5am on Friday 30 August until 5am on Sunday 1 September. Motorists will be directed to the next junction at Five Bells and return to the A13 /A1014 junction via the London-bound carriageway of the A13.

The Southend-bound on slip will be diverted from 5am on Monday 2 September for 24 hours. Motorists will be directed to the next junction at Orsett Cock Roundabout and return to the A13 /A1014 junction via the Southend-bound carriageway of the A13.

The London-bound off slip will be diverted from 5am on Thursday 5 September until 5am on Saturday 6 September. Motorists will be directed to the next junction at Orsett Cock Roundabout and return to the A13 /A1014 junction via the Southend-bound carriageway of the A13.

The diversion routes have been approved by the Highways Authority as a safe alternative route and will be clearly signposted.

The works are being undertaken to increase the capacity of the A13/A1014 junction by widening it from the current two lanes to three lanes.

Road users are reminded to subscribe to the email alerts system on www.a13roadworks.co.uk, which will provide advanced warning of changes to traffic management, allowing them to better plan their journey. Diversion routes will be signposted and kept to a minimum. Road users should plan their journey and allow extra time whilst the restrictions are in place.
