A temporary 40mph speed limit is now in place on the A13 to ensure the safety of road workers and the public during the road widening project.
The speed restriction is in place between the A128 (Orsett Cock roundabout) and the A1014 (Stanford-le-Hope), with camera enforcement in use.
Lane widths have also been narrowed so that works can take place at the side of the road without having to reduce the number of lanes available.
In addition, a 30mph limit is in place around the Orsett Cock roundabout and on the A1013 Stanford Road.
Please drive carefully through the works and pay attention to road signs.
