All the roadworks and road closures in Essex this week including …
Motorists in Essex could face a few delays this week (starting April 3) due to roadworks and road closures across the county. Those using some of Essex’s key roads like the A12 or one major road in Chelmsford might want to plan ahead to make sure they avoid any disruption.
Getting stuck in a traffic jam due to roadworks is always frustrating, but especially so when you realise it could have easily been avoided if you planned ahead.
Making sure you know what to expect is crucial, especially if you’re heading to the office or doing the daily school run, so it’s worth checking diversion routes once you’re aware your route will be impacted.
This week we’ve got some roadworks and road closures on the A12 and A13 as well as smaller local roads, so it’s even more important to plan ahead. There’s also a major closure of a busy road in Chelmsford city centre for the next few weeks.
Below you’ll find a list of all the roadworks you need to be aware of in Essex over the coming week. If you think we’ve missed any, be sure to get in touch with us in the comments or via e-mail at [email protected].
