Hoppit Bridge deck replacement works - start date confirmed

Hoppit Bridge deck replacement works - start date confirmed

Arrangements are now in place to begin bridge deck replacement works at Hoppit Bridge on Notley Road in Braintree.

Preliminary works are planned to start on Monday 20 September 2021 with two way traffic lights to prepare the site ready for the main works which begin in October.

From Monday 4 October 2021 a full closure of Notley Road at the bridge (between the junction with Godlings Way and St John’s Avenue) will be required 24 hours a day, 7 days a week until the works are complete. Vehicle access to St John’s Avenue will be maintained at all times from the south side of the bridge.

A signed diversion route will be in place during the road closure as no vehicles will be permitted to pass over the closed structure during our works.

A temporary footbridge will be installed to ensure access is maintained for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists.
