About the scheme

As part the planning permission granted by Maldon District Council for the Westcombe Park housing development (application 15/00419/OUT and APP/X1545/W/19/3230267), a new relief road will be constructed between Langford and Broad Street Green in Heybridge.
Countryside properties are responsible for the works and will be employing Walsh Contracting and FM Conway to carry out construction activities on their behalf.

How it may affect you

Roadworks will be carried out in phases, with traffic management reviewed and adjusted where necessary according to the activities being undertaken. Advertised dates may be subject to change if the programme is affected by poor weather or if unexpected issues arise.

Maypole Road

A left right staggered junction is being constructed on Maypole Road, which will eventually form part of the relief road between Langford Road and Broad Street Green.

To facilitate the construction works, temporary traffic management is in place to ensure that traffic flows safely through the area as work continues.

Broad Street Green

A new roundabout will be constructed at Broad Street Green. It is currently being built off-line adjacent to the road, however during the latter stages overnight road closures will be required to construct the connections to the existing road. 

From 9 October 2022, temporary traffic restrictions will be necessary to support activities being undertaken.  This will consist of:

  • OVERNIGHT - Temporary road closures between the hours of 8pm and 6.30am.
  • DAYTIME - Temporary traffic signals between 6.30am and 8pm.

Passenger Transport

During the road closure on Broad Street Green buses will be escorted through the closure.

Resident Access during road closures

Access will be provided to properties within a closed section of road.  All other vehicles are required to observe the road closure and follow local diversions in place.  No through-access will be provided.

During the closure of Maypole Road in Heybridge,  Crescent Road will be accessible from Holloway Road.  No access will be possible from the B1018 Langford Road/Heybridge Approach Roundabout.
