Residents using a rubbish tip in south Essex have been warned to expect delays this weekend.

Roadworks will be in place along Pitsea Hall Lane throughout today and tomorrow (Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 October).

This is due to work being carried out by Network Rail on the level crossing.

Bosses say Pitsea Recycling Centre will remain open throughout the weekend but they are warning users to expect delays.

The site was previously forced to close when emergency works were carried out on the nearby level crossing back in April.
