A SECTION of the A13 beneath the Orsett Cock roundabout will be closed this weekend to enable the next phase of works to be completed safely.
The closure takes place from 9pm on Friday 3 July to 5am on Monday 6 July. Traffic will be diverted via the exit and entry slip roads.
The temporary one-way system around Buckingham Hill Road, Butts Lane and Waltons Hall Road will not be in place during these times. 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.

On Monday at 7:30am, the one-way system will return. Traffic will only be able to travel northbound on Buckingham Hill Road – from Linford towards Stanford Road – and southbound on Butts Lane and Waltons Hall Road. This will be in place between 7:30am and 5:30pm every day that there not closures of the A13. The Household Waste and Recycling Centre is open daily from 8am to 5pm.
