During the closure, access to and out of the Linford Household Waste and Recycling Centre is through Buckingham Hill Road at the Linford end only. 

The one-way system will return at 7.30am on Monday. Thurrock Council say despite less traffic being on the roads, measures will be put in place to help keep traffic on the move.

The north end of Buckingham Hill Road will be closed, with access remaining open from the Linford end for users of the tip and businesses based along Buckingham Hill Road.

Orsett Road in Horndon will also be closed between High Road and Victoria Road, and there will be a temporary one-way system in Gordon Road and Victoria Road, Horndon.

Visitors must access the tip from the Linford end of Buckingham Hill Road, and then also exit towards Linford.
