East Bridge works rescheduled

East Bridge works rescheduled

We are pleased to confirm the surfacing works have now been rescheduled at East Bridge located on East Street, Colchester. These works include waterproofing the bridge deck and re-surfacing the carriageway along East Street.

A road closure will be required on East Street from Brook Street to Ipswich Road in order to carry out the main works in a safe manner. Pedestrian access over the bridge will be maintained at all times. Closures are scheduled for the following dates:

  • Friday 15 October to Monday 18 October 2021
  • Friday 22 October to Monday 25 October 2021 (contingency date)

The works will require a road closure 24 hours a day from 7pm Friday until 5am Monday on the advertised dates. Advanced warning notices will be in place prior to any works commencing and appropriate diversion routes will be implemented during road closures

Due to the forthcoming road closure bus operators have been provided notice of the works and have made adjustments to services which will be affected by the closure. Further details can be found on the East Bridge webpage. Notices will be displayed on all bus stops on the route with details of the diversion route.

We would like to thank residents and local businesses in advance for their patience and co-operate while we undertake these necessary works.
