For Fairglen read Rayleigh Spur! Many locals don't know where Fairglen is - this junction has been Rayleigh Spur for years - County Hall can't expect to change it!

This has been raised before. The Fairglen Interchange is, and always has been, the junction where the old A130 (now the A1245) passes under the A127 - as shown in the photo.
The Rayleigh Spur is the somewhat inappropriate name for the A130 both north and south of the Rettendon Turnpike which goes nowhere near Rayleigh!

It isn't surprising at this junction as you have to get in the right lane to go under the A127 towards Rettendon and then cross three lanes to get into the inside lane to go forward onto the A130. Very poor design. And no, I,ve never heard it called the Rayleigh Spur either!
