Arriving By Car
Arriving by car could not be easier; going
north from Canvey the A130 intersects the A13, the A127 and the A12. All
of which are fast ways of getting around Essex. The A13 travelling east from the A130 to Southend is slow and often congested and should be avoided if possible.
The B1014 From Canvey to the A13 is easy to navigate and rarely has
congestion. The B1006 should be avoided as this route can add up to twenty
minutes to your journey. There are no routes south of Canvey Island unless
you fancy a swim in the Thames!
Coming onto Canvey Island The A130 and B1014 merge for the waterside farm
roundabout. Take the B1014 going east and turn right into the waterside
farm leisure Centre car park. The parking conditions in this car park as
of 2022 are the car park is free for a maximum of three hours.
Points to be aware of when driving in the area. There are average speed
cameras along the A130: The B1014 from the waterside farm roundabout to
the leisure centre entrance is only three lanes wide. There is only one
lane travelling east to west and somebody in their wisdom has placed a bus
stop seventy metres from the roundabout. Cars coming off the roundabout at
40mph are often faced with an impatient idiot on the wrong side of the
road overtaking a bus at the bus stop
