Travel between Canvey and Benfleet made more convenient.

New bridge and old ford. Two ways to cross the creek but now one is redundant.

A motorist’s eye view of crossing the new bridge. When travelling to Benfleet you could get caught at the bridge while they opened it to let boats through and then if you were really unlucky you’d get caught at the level crossing as well. The railway is just out of sight in the picture.
