Roads: A13 and A130

Volume 694: debated on Thursday 26 July 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What plans they have to upgrade the intersection between the A13 and the A130 to increase the safe flow of traffic. [HL5163]

The Thames Gateway A13/A130 Sadlers Farm Junction scheme being promoted by Essex County Council was granted programme entry in July 2006 with an agreed departmental funding contribution of £63.6 million. The scheme will be to provide an underpass linking the A13 west to the A130 north, to convert the existing junction into a conventional roundabout with signalised entry and to widen other roads linking into the junction. This is expected to reduce congestion and improve safety on the strategic network.
