I thought that slip road was going to roundabout to feed both benfleet and canvey, is that not the case?
No, just Canvey traffic. People travelling to Benfleet will have to navigate the roundabout the normal way, so they would approach the roundabout in the left hand lane while traffic for Canvey will stick right and take the road that has been built through the actual roundabout.
I take it that's what you mean, or have we got our wires crossed?[/quote]
The part I was referring to was the bit on the A13 eastbound where you turn off to go up to the new bridge.
I can see how they are splitting the traffic which seems ok.
It does look like the end of the tunnel is at least visible now, by those dates it would appear in two weeks things will improve greatly.
I assume Benfleet > A130 have to traverse the whole roundabout now which seems a bit convoluted.[/quote]
looks like benfleet gets two lanes and canvey one,although one of the benfleet lanes looks like it goes to old A13,might be some cutting into the roundabout there.Oh it is going to be fun.,would have been simpler to build an underpass to tarpots surely ?[/quote]
Dont confuse matters!! as long as its an improvement its 63 quid well spent!!
