The A113 is a major road in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and Essex. It runs from Dagenham, through Barking and Collier Row, to Romford. It opened in 1971 as part of the M11 motorway, which was later abandoned. It has since been developed as a dual carriageway running all the way from Romford to the Thames Gateway.

The busiest times on the A113 are during rush hour, when traffic tends to be at its heaviest. The road is moderately busy throughout the day, with some traffic flowing off the M25 motorway and other surrounding areas.

The safety statistics show that the A113 is safe in comparison to other areas. According to The Department of Transport, the average collision rate on the A113 is lower than the national average for non-built-up roads. The road is well lit and has few dangerous bends or sharp turns. The only issue is that due to its location, there are often queues at passing points when traffic is heavy and these can create dangerous driving conditions.

Overall, the A113 road is relatively safe and is a useful thoroughfare for commuters in and around the area.
