Port Access Road

VolkerFitzpatrick has been contracted to construct a new Port Access Road for London Gateway

About the works

The existing Sorrells Roundabout consists of four arms, including The Manorway, The Sorrells and Corringham Road.  The overall aim of the scheme is to move and alter the layout of the Sorrells Roundabout to allow greater capacity and provide a new carriageway into the port.

The circulatory section of the roundabout is to be moved away from the houses into the field to the South East. The circulatory carriageway of the roundabout is to be increased from two lanes to three, to provide greater capacity.

The two arms of The Manorway and Corringham Road will remain and a new arm will be constructed to bring traffic into the port.  Sorrells Road will alter and become a side road on The Manorway. The roundabout and the junction of Sorrells Road/The Manorway will be put under traffic signal control. A new crossing will be installed to allow pedestrians to safely cross The Manorway.

Major works will commence in August 2013 and finish in complete in Spring 2014.
