A13 Sadlers Farm Improvement

Scheme outline

Construction of a new underpass linking the A13 dual carriageway from London to the A130, allowing traffic to flow more easily between the A13, A127 and A130 dual carriageways avoiding the current interchange at Sadlers Farm. The "magic roundabout" will be rebuilt into a standard signalised as part of the works.

A short new link connects the A13 directly to Canvey Island.
