Action plan on roadworks
6:00am Tuesday 24th December 2013 in News
AN action plan is being drawn up in a bid to reduce traffic disruption when work is undertaken on a major road.
Essex County Council says work needs to be done to improve the condition of the A133 between Cowdray Avenue and Greenstead Road, in Colchester. The project will take eight months. The route has an average of 30,000 traffic movements a day.
A county council spokesman said: “We would like to assure residents the works will be undertaken outside of peak traffic hours and with the appropriate traffic management to ensure the safety of the workforce and public and to keep any disruption to a minimum.’’
Temporary repair work has already started between the Spring Lane roundabout, at the top of the Avenue of Remembrance, and Greenstead Road roundabout.
In March, permanent patching and surface works will be carried out and surface treatment will take take place on St Andrew’s Avenue, between Harwich Road and Greenstead Road, roundabout next spring.
Some time after April, Cowdray Avenue will be resurfaced, with new road markings painted in August.
Rodney Bass, county councillor for highways and transportation, said everything possible would be done to keep disruption to a minimum, but stressed the work was needed.
