Southend Borough Council’s looking for views on plans to upgrade a busy junction of the A127.
Three options have been drawn up to improve The Bell – where the road connects with Hobleythick Lane and Rochford Road.
It follows similar work on nearby junctions including Progress Road, Kent Elms Corner and Cuckoo Corner.
Five million pounds has been set aside for the project.
Consultations will take place at Prince Avenue and Earls Hall schools next Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon.
