A13/A130 Sadlers Farm

We are undertaking a programme of remedial works on the A13/A130 Sadlers Farm scheme on behalf of Essex County Council from October 2017 until early 2023.

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.

The final phased programme of remedial works at Sadlers Farm is planned to complete in early 2023.

The remaining works to early 2023 include bridge remedial works, replacement of bearings on two bridges, various fencing/barrier improvements and surfacing works on the A130.

Some of these bridge remedial works will involve a full closure of the A13 between Pitsea Interchange and Rayliegh Spur roundabout to undertake intrusive structural repair work to Sadlers Farm Bridge and Sadlers Hall Bridge. 

Subject to ECC Network Assurance approvals, these dates may change.

Balfour Beatty already completed the majority of the works on the main A13/A130 carriageway and approach roads on programme to enable traffic to use all available lanes.
