Resurfacing work to improve A120

Essex County Standard: Harwich mayor Dave McLeod Harwich mayor Dave McLeod

RESURFACING work will begin on the A120 in a bid to improve road conditions.

Overnight work on the A120 at Horsley Cross will start on Monday from 8pm.

It is due to finish on Thursday.

Earlier this year, parts of the road from Harwich to Horsley Cross were branded “unsafe”.

Harwich mayor Dave McLeod called for urgent action to be taken to improve the road.

Mr McLeod said: “Hopefully it is not going to cause too much disruption.”

Adam Schwalm, Highways Agency project sponsor, said: “The A120 is a vital part of our road network in Essex and this work is one of four schemes to maintain safe and reliable journeys here.

“Work has been planned to take place overnight between 8pm and 6am, outside of the busier peak periods, to minimise disruption. Drivers who might be affected by this work are advised to plan ahead and leave extra time to travel.”

During the work the main carriageway will remain open with temporary traffic signals in place to manage traffic and some side road closures.

While work takes place, road users wishing to join the A120 from Colchester Road will be diverted to follow Colchester Road and Harwich Road to join the A120 at Wix.

Drivers joining the A120 at the Heath Road junction will be diverted to follow the B1035, B1033 and A133 to rejoin the A120. Motorists joining the A120 at the Clacton Road junction will follow the B1035 and B1352.
