New 40mph speed limit to be introduced on A127 Basildon
The speed limit is being put in place as a safety measure following the identification of damage on the central reserve between the A128 and Dunton interchanges.
The speed limit will be in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and will be fully enforceable until further notice.
A large section of the safety restraints system on the central reserve needs to be assessed and repaired, so the 40mph speed limit is being introduced to reduce the possibility of accidents while repairs are being arranged.
County Councillor Tracey Chapman, Cabinet Member for Highways & Transportation said: "The 40mph speed limit is required to ensure safety while repairs to the central reservation are arranged. We apologise for any inconvenience caused, and I thank motorists in advance for their patience at this time."
