Original route in Thurrock and Basildon The eastern half of New Road originates from 1924, bypassing Purfleet (the project including that town's now unclassified "bypass").
Grade-separated in 2002-2004, the dual carriageway section through Newham is Newham Way, while through Barking it is Alfreds Way, both comprising the East Ham & Barking Bypass, and originally dualled by the 1960s.Ripple Road and the Thames Gateway East of the Lodge Avenue junction near Barking, the route then takes over the much older Ripple Road, with its last at-grade junction at Renwick Road, while the all-new grade-separated section east of the Goresbrook Interchange at Dagenham is termed the Thames Gateway, completed in 1999.This is notable for the award-winning viaduct The contract also included the Wennington to M25 motorway section (see below).In 2005, Havering Council commissioned the Litmus Towers sculptures on the A13 junctions near Rainham which display local environmental data using large LED arrays.Wennington to Sadlers Hall Farm The Thames Gateway section of the A13 leaves London at Wennington on the border with Thurrock, still dual three lanes, intersecting with the M25 motorway at Junction 30, close to the Dartford Crossing and Lakeside Shopping Centre.It is a trunk road between London and the Tilbury junction, a primary route between there and Sadlers Hall Farm near South Benfleet, and a non-primary route between there and Shoeburyness.
The A13 used to start at Aldgate Pump; but now begins at the junction with the A11 at what used to be the Aldgate one way system in east London and heads eastwards through the boroughs of Tower Hamlets, Newham, Barking & Dagenham and Havering before reaching the Greater London boundary.
The A13 here is a much older dual carriageway, dating mostly to the 1980s, including the four-lane flyover above the M25, left incomplete for over 15 years. The next junction, the turn-off for Lakeside (A126), has only west-facing slips, so there is no exit westbound.
It is then dual three lanes past the junction with the A1089, the road into Tilbury, and loses its Trunk Road status to the latter.
It has National Speed Limit from just east of Goresbrook Interchange.
London Bus routes 173 and 287 are the only routes to use the A13 here, between Ripple Road and Goresbrook.
East Ham & Barking By-pass (Newham Way and Alfreds Way) However, just east of Blackwall, at the crossing of the River Lea, there is a TOTSO (turn-off to stay on) with the A1261 East India Dock Link Tunnel, and the road changes character dramatically, becoming a dual three-lane expressway.
