Revised Road Closure Details - Marks Tey Station Bridge, North Lane, Marks Tey

Essex Highways would like to make you aware that the work which was due to take place to install the Vehicle Restraint Barrier System to the railway bridge will not commence in November but will now commence on Monday 13th January 2020. This is to avoid disruption to local residents, businesses and Greater Anglia in the build up to and during the Christmas period.

In order to carry out this work a temporary full road closure will be required and this will be put in place for all vehicles 24 hours a day over the bridge from Monday 13th January until July 2020. Arrangements are being made to ensure pedestrian access is maintained over the bridge. Further details will be provided nearer the time.

During the road closure a signed vehicle diversion will be in place via North Lane, Brook Road, New Road, A1124 Halstead Road, A1124 Essex Yeomanry Way, B1408 London Road, A120 Marks Tey Interchange, Station Road and vice versa. 

Drivers are urged to observe traffic management and signage in place during road closures and to take additional care and drive cautiously through the area.  In particular, drivers need to be aware that the diversion route will be used by long vehicles that have no alternative route/access.

Residents/Businesses in the immediate vicinity will shortly receive a letter providing an update of our plans (example letter attached), and an update will be made to the webpage in due course.
