The A13 will be partially closed again this weekend amid warnings about noise being made during demolition work.

Contractors are due to pull down the old Orsett West Bridge between 9pm on Friday and 5am on Monday.

It means both sides of the A13 will be closed beneath the A128 junction, at the Orsett Cock roundabout, and traffic will be diverted up and down the entry and exit slip roads.

West bridge will also be closed northbound between the A13 westbound entry slip and eastbound exit slip road.

A diversion will be in place taking motorists along the A13 westbound to the A1012 at Stifford junction and back again on the eastbound side.

Thurrock Council has warned the demolition work will create “significant overnight noise” and has apologised in advance for any disturbances caused by the work.

It forms part of a major scheme which will see the A13 widened to three lanes between the Orsett Cock roundabout and Stanford-le-Hope.

As part of the work, four bridges are being replaced, the Orsett Cock roundabout is being widened and new traffic lights are being installed to manage traffic.

Council bosses say the widening scheme will boost the economy by helping businesses to increase productivity, reduce costs and create more jobs.
