Welcome to the Highways Service Information Centre
The A13 / A130 Sadlers Farm junction forms part of the strategic highway network serving Thames Gateway South Essex. The previous junction comprised of a series of five small roundabouts within a gyratory system and was historically subject to severe congestion and delays.
The scheme represeted an essential element of the long-term strategy for Basildon and the Thames Gateway contributing to targets for the area relating to congestion, accessibility, safety, air quality and enhanced maintenance. This is achieved through the main objective of the scheme which is to reduce congestion on the strategic network.
The objective noted above was delivered by the construction of a strategic link road removing 30% of the existing traffic complimented by signalisation of the existing gyratory, widening of the A13 and the introduction of a dedicated turning from the A13 onto Canvey Island.
