Hercules Bridge road closure planned to support investigation works

Plans are in place to carry out additional investigation works at Hercules Bridge from Monday 16 August to Friday 27 August 2021.  These works are necessary due to inconsistent findings in relation to the utility apparatus within the carriageway.  

During these dates it will be necessary to temporarily close Debden Road at the bridge 24 hours a day until the works are complete.

No vehicles will be permitted to pass over the structure due to the restricted working area, however pedestrian access will be possible. Advance warning notices will be on site prior to the works starting and appropriate diversion routes will be in place during the road closure, including a separate diversion route for Heavy Goods Vehicles.  Access to nearby residential properties will be maintained from either side of the bridge.  

We appreciate these works may cause local inconvenience for which we are sorry, however it is important that these works are carried out.  Please support us by taking additional care travelling through the area and observing signage in place.
