Road Closures and Updates Essex County Highways

Work to improve the A120 near Great Bromley

Further to the traffic management bulletin issued last week, we are writing to inform you of a change to our plans for the A120 this week.

We would like to apologise for any confusion this may cause but felt that this change was necessary to maintain safety for road users being escorted past the work area.

Work to resurface the carriageway and footpaths continues tonight, and for the rest of the week, alongside additional work to upgrade street lighting, install safety markings, renew safety barriers and install signs and bollards.
We are nearing completion of the work along the A120 between Marks Tey and Coggeshall.
The A120 will be closed to non-residential traffic in both directions between Marks Tey Roundabout (A12 junction 25) and B1024 Coggeshall, overnight between 8pm and 6am, from Tuesday 5 September for 4 nights.
Important information for A120/Marks Tey estate residents
During the overnight works there will be no access available to the A120, or the Marks Tey estate from the Marks Tey Roundabout. A clearly signed diversion will be in place via the A12 for non-residential traffic, however, local residents may wish to find a more direct alternative route via Kelvedon, Great Tey or Coggeshall.
The A120 westbound will be width-restricted near Coggeshall, to prevent HGVs and through traffic from attempting to use the route. Residents and businesses will still be permitted to access their properties along here.
There will be no through route via the road closure, residents will ONLY be permitted into the closure if their properties are within the closed section of road.

All other road users must use an alternative route. Our traffic management crew will not permit access to people who want to travel through the closure area and out the other side.

This procedure is to ensure both your safety and that of our workforce, and ignoring it will put all involved at risk.

We apologise for the inconvenience but this work is essential. In order to ensure a safe site we need to keep the level of access to a minimum.
