Note the very long slips. The road in right foreground is and old section of A128 that used to cross the A127 here at an at-grade roundabout.

A128 former alignment and crossing of A127 - Coppermine - 5513.jpg
A128 former alignment and crossing of A127

The former flare for at-grade roundabout crossing of the A128 and A127. The 1970's new grade separated junction is now half a mile to the east and the slips from that are very long and cross in the middleground of the picture. The pub at back is the Halfway House and the new junction is still called by this name.

A12 Gallows Corner - Coppermine - 7480.JPG
A12 Gallows Corner

This could have come out a bit better, but the A12 Totsos here with A127 traffic for Southend flying over the junction to head due east. The flyover was obviously a temporary structure, being only S2 and quite bumpy! The A127 Southend Arterial Road and the A12 Eastern Avenue west of here were built at about the same time (1920s or thereabout). To the left we are just about to pick up the original roman route from Colchester to London, while to the right the original route and former A12 heads southwest towards Romford as the A118 Main Road.

GEC Brick at Gallows Corner

Among the MA60s on the slip roads leading on and off the A12 Eastern Avenue at Gallows Corner is this single surviving GEC Brick, which would be the original lantern to this column. The others have been gradually replaced by gear-in-shoe MA60s over the years. There is, however, one surviving example on the opposite slip road as well, although it is rather shrouded in trees.

Aerial view of south-west of the Rayleigh Weir The Rayleigh Weir roundabout (prior to grade separation) is partially visible at the mid-lower right. The London Arterial Road (A127) runs from the Weir to the upper left, and the Rayleigh Road (A129) to the lower left. The road below and parallel to the A127 is Kingsley Lane. The car park to the lower right is that of Sainsburys Supermarket. The open area bordering the Rayleigh Road now has several retail and light industrial premises.

Where the Halfway House roundabout used to be Looking north up the old route of the A128 to where there was originally a roundabout on the A127 Southend Arterial Road where the A128 crossed. Now the junction is grade separated further east. There is no way out ahead. It is possible to enter from the A128 slip road but not directly from the A127.
