The A13 eastbound (from Five Bells to Pitsea Flyover) will be closed this weekend so that emergency structural repair work can be carried out.
The closure will be in place from 9pm on Friday (22 June) until 4am on Monday (25 June).
A signed diversion will be in place however it is expected the closure will cause delays and therefore we would ask people to find an alternative route during this time if possible.
Emergency Service access will be enabled at times.
The temporary road closure has to take place so that we can carry out major repairs to the concrete structure of the road which has previously broken to create a significant pothole. The situation now is assessed as such that major repairs must be urgently carried out to ensure the safety of the road.
