Level crossings at East Tilbury and Fobbing to close (temporarily)

TWO level crossings in the east of Thurrock will be closed for a while in February to allow Network Raid to carry out maintenance work.

The crossings at Princess Margaret Road, East Tilbury, and Fobbing will be shut and diversions will be signposted.

The High Road, Fobbing crossing is likely to be shut throughout Sunday, 15 February, closing at 1.05am with the order remaining in place until 2.50am on Monday, 16 February. The road will open earlier if possible.

The diversion route will be via High Road, Lion Hill, Fobbing Road, Lampits Hill, Southend Road, and High Road.

A similar closure will be at the Princess Margaret Road crossing between the junction of Halt Drive and the Gobions Park entrance.

The 12-hour closure will be between 1am and 1pm on Sunday, 15 February and again the road will reopen earlier if Network Rail’s maintenance is completed.

The alternative route is via Princess Margaret Road, Station Road, Church Road, Blue Anchor Lane and Muckingford Road.
