A127 / A132 Nevendon Interchange improvement scheme


A127 / A132 Nevendon Interchange improvement scheme

A series of improvements have been undertaken on the A127 / A132 Nevendon Interchange during 2016/2017, financed by Government’s Local Growth Fund via South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP) 

The scheme was designed to manage congestion at the Nevendon roundabout and improve A127 journey times and access to Basildon and Wickford via the A132 Nevendon Interchange.

Works included:  

  • Widening of the Nevendon roundabout from two to three lanes 
  • Introduction of a new left turn lane under traffic signal controlled for vehicles travelling from the west on the A127 Southend Arterial Road to the A132 northbound to Wickford
  • Upgrade to traffic signals.

Proposals to reduce congestion northbound on the A132 East Mayne by introducing a one-way route westbound on Christopher Martin Road were fully investigated and the decision made not to pursue this option.
