|Route outline (key)|
The road started on the A126 (now A1306) and headed south over the Mar Dyke into Purfleet (the original northern end was later rerouted to avoid a level crossing). Within sight of the River Thames it bore left to run along London Road parallel to the river, before crossing a railway line at a level crossing by Purfleet station. The road continued east to Stonehouse Corner, where it ended, back on the A126.
Later, in the 1980s, the road was extended along Stonehouse Lane, which links to A282 junction 31. The A126 was removed from the area soon afterwards, which was renumbered A1306 to the west, although was declassified through Stonehouse Corner.
