Road maintenance

Grays roadworks and 2-way system

Works to improve the transport network in Grays are taking place between Thursday 16 January and Friday 27 March 2020.

Why these works are taking place

We've listened to local residents and businesses who asked us to bring back a 2-way road system on Orsett Road.

The current works will support our plans to make Grays safer and more accessible, promoting job creation and providing better access to training and learning.

Roads affected

During the period of these works, there will be road closures on Orsett Road, Bridge Road, Clarence Road and Stanley Road.

Crown Road has already been made into a 2-way system and can be used as an alternative route.

Temporary signals and signs for traffic and pedestrians will be in place throughout this time. These will replace the traffic signals that were previously in use on these roads.

The Orsett Road 2-way system is expected to be in place by spring 2020, shortly followed by permanent traffic lights at the junctions of:

  • Derby Road and Clarence Road
  • Stanley Road and Clarence Road
  • Stanley Road and Orsett Road
  • Orsett Road and Derby Road
