Late May bank holiday will see the demolition and replacement of the western side of Ardleigh Green Bridge in Hornchurch. Demolition works will take place from 21:00 on Friday 25th of May 2018 until 05:00 on Tuesday 29th of May. Delivery of the new bridge will take place overnight on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd of June between 21:00 and 08:00 the following morning. 

During this time there will be some temporary road closures:

Yesterday evening a man in his twenties was killed in a traffic accident near the Eastbrook pub, Dagenham. There have been a number of accidents relating to vehicles on this particular stretch of road over the years, which spans from the Eastbrook pub to just past Eastbrook Comprehensive School. Back at the end of 2015 former council leader and local resident Charlie Fairbrass MBE was knocked down and hospitalised by a vehicle.

Recently Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham and Rainham was contacted by Highways England to confirm that improvements between M25 junction 30 and the A13 are now open to traffic. An extra lane has been added on the A13 between the A126 and junction 30, to increase capacity an alleviate congestion.

The good news for drivers is that the extra capacity offered by this scheme is open in time for Christmas, and should help improve shopping trips to major destinations such as Bluewater and Lakeside.

Traffic and parking concerns in Rainham

Jon Cruddas MP: “Over the past few weeks many parents have come forward to express their growing concern regarding the parking and traffic flow around Rainham schools during school time. I need your help and views on what’s best for the area to help alleviate the problem.”
