Essex Highways, Safer, Greener, Healthier

Hall Road, Rochford

About the scheme:

Engineers appointed by Bellway Homes are progressing works in Rochford to create an access and T junction to support the new residential development, as well as other highway improvements to improve traffic flow. 

The works

Works began in March 2016 to undertake the following improvements:

  • Provision of a new T junction and roundabout in Hall Road
  • Lane widening at Hall Road/Ashingdon Road/West street to manage traffic flow
  • Lane widening at Southend Road/Sutton Road to manage traffic flow
  • Improvements to footways, drainage and street lighting on Ironwell Lane

It is anticipated that work will be complete by late summer 2016, however this is subject to works not being hampered by weather or unexpected issues discovered during the work. 

What is involved and how may it affect you?

Some overnight road closures will be required during the roadworks, details of which will be published in advance on this webpage and on local signage.

The developer’s appointed contractor, Breheny Civil Engineering, will monitor traffic during the works to minimise delays where possible, however drivers are advised to allow extra time for their journeys and consider the use of alternative routes where possible as delays are likely.
