Bell Junction is a signalised crossroads in Southend-on-Sea. It is named after the pub that sits on the northeast corner of the junction, which is called The Bell, albeit branded as a Toby Carvery.

In 2021-1, work was carried out on the junction at a cost of £5m[1].

This comprised the following:

  • A new dedicated left-turn lane onto Rochford Road;
  • Extending the right-turn lane onto Hobleythick Lane;
  • Better pedestrian facilities on Rochford Road by providing a traffic-signal pedestrian crossing;
  • Better pedestrian facilities on Hobleythick Lane by providing a new pedestrian island;
  • Banning the right-turn onto Rochford Road, in order to free up more “green light” time for motorists going straight ahead along the A127 in both directions, and improve pedestrian facilities
  • Removing the footbridge, which does not comply with disability discrimination legislation because of the lack of ramps.

as well as new landscaping to the north west of the junction.

The footbridge was removed overnight on 19th September 2020[2]..
