Three separate collisions on the A13 caused hours of delays for drivers.
The unconnected crashes happened just prior to the Wennington junction on Tuesday evening with the first collision at about 5.30pm.
It meant traffic was slow moving for three hours until about 8.30pm with tailbacks as far back as Marsh Way, Rainham.
TfL confirmed the first crash involved a car and a lorry meaning the A13 Essexbound was reduced to just one lane.
