A13 weekend closure between Tilbury and the Orsett Cock roundabout

THE A13 will be closed in both directions between the A1089 (Tilbury) and A128 (Orsett Cock) with a diversion via the A13, M25, A127 and the A128 and vice versa.

The closure takes place from 10pm on Friday 12 March until 5am on Monday 15 March. The location of this closure is different to previous A13 road widening closures, to enable complex works to be carried out to the west of Orsett.

The A1089 northbound link road to the A13 eastbound will also be closed. Non-local drivers are urged to avoid travelling through Thurrock on the A13, and to use the A127 diversion instead. A separate diversion will be in place for local traffic, including non-motorway permitted vehicles such as mopeds.

The closure is required to enable the removal of an old signage gantry and to facilitate the installation of new street lighting ducts underneath the carriageway.
