Information for Cray Wanderers supporters looking to travel by car to East Thurrock United on Saturday, 22nd February.

We’ve been informed by East Thurrock United that on Saturday and all weekend the A13 in both directions will be closed between the A128 junction (Orsett Cock roundabout) and the A1014 junction (Stanford-le-Hope) with a diversion via the A1013 Stanford Road.  You will need to take this junction to head to Rookery Hill for the ground. The diversion system has on previous occasion led to long delays. So best to leave yourself plenty of time for your journey.

Non-local traffic are advised to use alternative routes such as the A127 and M25 – see the alternative route diversion map below.

The best bet as advised by an East Thurrock United supporter is to: Continue on M25 and take the next junction onto A127, follow towards Basildon and take A176 which is a pretty straight run past Basildon Hospital, cross over A13 at Five Bells Junction and then take B1420 to Corringham and on to the ground.


Drivers are advised not to travel through Horndon on the Hill as an alternative to the A13 and the A1013.  Horndon on the Hill is a small residential village – subject to height, width and weight restrictions – and is not a suitable diversion route.

More details to follow in the coming days including details of train travel which might be a good option for many but would mean a trip to London to do it.
