Commercial Road dates from 1802, Today the route is still largely single carriageway, though notable is the junction with the A12 and A102 at the northern portal of the Blackwall Tunnel.This section of A13 is used by the important London Bus routes 15 (as far as Blackwall) and 115.Here the road meets the A130 and loses its dual and Primary Route status.
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.
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").
It subsequently intersects with the M25 and A282 at Junction 31, heads past Lakeside and then ends at the A1012 near Grays.
Works involved inserting new underpasses at Prince Regent and Movers Lane, a new flyover at Beckton Alps, and expanding Canning Town flyover from two lanes either way to three.
Also inserted was the free-flow link to the A1261 tunnel.
