Cowdray Bridge works completing & planned September night closures on Ipswich Road South

Following good progress on site we are pleased to advise that the works to Cowdray Bridge in Colchester are now drawing to a close. Subsequent to completing this final phase of work and the full opening of Ipswich Road Roundabout, we will be concluding with the installation of the new zebra crossing on Ipswich Road South. 

To support these works three night closures will be required on Ipswich Road South to avoid daytime disruption. We are aiming to close the road for the nights of Wednesday 1 September to Friday 3 September 2021 (reopening Saturday morning), and we will be working between 8pm and 6am.

Please drive carefully through and around the works at these times, observing traffic management and signage in place.

Dates may be subject to change if the works are affected by poor weather or if unexpected issues arise.

Thank you for your continued patience while we complete this final phase.
