Traffic is still very bad. We don’t have any updates beyond, the sheer volume of traffic in immediate area. We feel like apologising.
Highways Agency East: “There was an incident at J30 earlier with a shed load but this was cleared just before 4pm. No incidents reported since then. The delays around J30 are down to sheer volume of traffic on all approach roads.
Ensign Buses: “Today is one of the worst traffic issues we’ve ever seen in Thurrock. The various authorities need to be asking why, what went wrong? Does not bode well with all the new houses due to be built within the Lakeside basin over the next few years!
Roads around @intuLakeside and West Thurrock are extremely heavy with lengthy delays. There are no ongoing incidents, it’s just volume of traffic however reports of up to an hour delay at present. #Thurrock

AN earlier incident on the M25 is causing major delays on roads in Thurrock. It has had a significant impact on traffic and led to long delays on the M25, A13 and many of the borough’s roads.
Please check your journey in advance and, if possible, use alternative routes.
