About the works

Improvements took place in 2017 for the A176 Nethermayne/Dry Street junction located in Dunton, Basildon. The scheme is part of a section 106 planning condition granted by Basildon Borough Council (Planning Application 12/01080/OUT), for the Redrow Homes Development located on land north of Dry Street. 

Works included:

  • A signalised junction at Dry Street with Nethermayne

  • Street lighting will replaced and upgraded

This improvement scheme is designed to increase the capacity of the A176 at the junction by adding vehicle capacity, improving the flow of traffic.  It is also designed to provide safer access to Dry Street from/to Nethermayne.
