|Route outline (key)|
The road starts in the west at Dovers Corner, the roundabout in Rainham with the A125 and A1306, the latter being a slightly later incarnation of the A13 to the east of Dovers Corner (mid-1920s to late 1990s). It passes through Rainham as Bridge Road (past Tesco) and The Broadway before running along Wennington Road to crosses the A1306 at a staggered junction near Wennington, on the London Borough of Havering/Thurrock border.
East of there the road runs along Sandy Lane and before long reaches Aveley, where at a small roundabout the original A13 (and B1335) route diverges to the southeast as Mill Road. The B1335 here becomes the Aveley By-pass. On the eastern side of the town it rejoins its original route at a further roundabout as Stifford Road, quickly crossing the M25.
On the other side of the motorway it skirts the southern edge of South Ockendon, and just after crossing over the LTSR line between Upminster and Grays, it ends on the B186 at a set of traffic lights. The original A13 continues via the B186 (briefly) before continuing eastward through North Stifford, meeting the A13 and A1012 at Stifford Interchange and then reaching the end of the A1306, where Lodge Lane takes up the original A13 baton.
