A13/A130 Sadlers Farm

About the project

We are undertaking a programme of remedial works on the A13/A130 Sadlers Farm scheme on behalf of Essex County Council from October 2017.

The works, to improve the longevity and reliability of the key junction, will include the upgrading of existing drainage systems on the A13 Link Road, the replacement of bearings on two bridges and carriageway strengthening on the A13 near Pitsea.

We will implement a multi-phase traffic management plan, comprising of a series of lane closures, overnight and weekend works to carry out the works which will inevitably and unfortunately cause some disruption to road users and local communities. Visit our project news page for more information.

Much of the work will be completed away from the road, overnight and on weekends to reduce disruption to road users and the local community. Lane closures will only be used where they are essential to manage the safety of the workforce, public and the volume of traffic through this key road network during these essential works.
