M25 junction 30/A13 corridor relieving congestion schemeRecently updated

Improving the capacity of the M25 junction 30/A13 corridor.

Region:  South East
Start date:  February 2015
Cost:  ¬£79.3 million
Status:  COMPLETED
Type:  Major Scheme
End date:  Autumn 2016
Programme:  

Progress report

We are now consulting on the proposed introduction of a 50mph speed limit to a 65m section of the newly built segregated slip road, leading from the clockwise carriageway of the M25 onto the A13 eastbound. The proposal is recommended solely for safety reasons as a means to offset the increased likelihood of potential collisions and therefore protect users on this part of the network.

If accepted, the 50mph speed restriction will be implemented as part of the M25 junction 30/A13 Corridor relieving congestion scheme which completed construction in April 2017.

Permanent 50mph restrictions have already been introduced onto the A13 section of the slip road, while the preceding 65m section, which we are looking to consult on, falls under motorway regulations and is currently running under a 50mph advisory speed limit.

We are keen to have your comments on the proposal for the implementation of this reduced speed limit at junction 30; specifically on how the proposal could affect your organisation or those you represent.

The consultation will run for three weeks from the Monday 5th February 2018 until Monday 26th February 2018.

Why we need this scheme

This section of the M25 experiences congestion throughout most of the day with performance susceptible to frequent incidents on the adjacent highway network. It directly services the Port of Tilbury and the Lakeside regional shopping centre and is regarded as the last major transport constraint to the development of the Thames Gateway area. As development gets under way traffic growth will increase and congestion worsen. Traffic is forecast to grow by 25% by 2032. We have developed the scheme within the existing highways boundary. Our proposals are:
  • online widening in both directions between junction 30 and the A126
  • improvements to the junction 30 slip roads
  • introduction of dedicated left turn lanes from the A13 to the M25 northbound and M25 southbound to the A13 eastbound

Aims

Our main objective of the scheme is to improve capacity of the highway network centred on M25 junction 30 and in particular the A13 through junction 30 and to the junction with the A126, an area recognised as the biggest remaining constraint to the development of the Lower Thames Gateway.

Air Quality

We have carried out air quality assessments and there are no perceptible increases of NO2 or PM10 concentrations at receptors as a result of the scheme. However, we predict the scheme will lead to small decreases at 7 receptors which currently exceed the NO2 AQ0. Air quality impact has been assessed as low.

Noise

Existing noise mitigation will be retained or replaced as necessary. Short term and long term noise impacts as a result of the scheme in operation are predicted to be negligible, with no perceptible noise changes being predicted. During construction, there is potential for noise impacts to properties nearest the works. All construction will be carried out under a Section 61 noise agreement. This ensures control measures are in place, as established between the contractor and the local authority's Environmental Health Officers.

Landscape

The scheme will include replacement planting to soften and integrate the improved road into its surroundings as far as possible.

Cultural Heritage

Effects on cultural heritage were assessd as neutral.

Ecology

A range of birds, mammals, reptiles and plant species are present within the scheme boundary. We will retain existing habitats as far as possible and provide new replacement habitat as required.

Water

Reduction of flows and pollution control devices for the drainage network will be included in the scheme to ensure there is no adverse impact.

Land use

No disruption of current land use is envisaged.
