Oasis Bridge – Overnight road closure for removal of northbound contraflow

Due to heavy rain last night, unfortunately it was not possible to change the contraflow on the A138 Chelmer Road as planned.

Preparations are now being made for an overnight road closure to be in place on Wednesday 29 September 2021 in order to change the contraflow from the northbound carriageway to the southbound carriageway

The closure will be in place between the hours of 8pm to 5am during which appropriate signs and diversion route will be in place.  When the road reopens on Thursday 30 September 2021 a contraflow will be in place on the southbound carriageway.

For those travelling on the A138 Chelmer Road (northbound) in the direction of Boreham interchange, after the Toby Carvery Roundabout traffic will be diverted on the exit slip towards the B1137 Springfield Road.  From here it will be possible to re-join the A138 Chelmer Road via the entry slip.

For those travelling southbound (in the direction of the Toby Carvery roundabout), a diversion will be in place via the A130, Colchester Road where you can re-join the A138 Chelmer Road via the Eastern Approach entry slip.

Vehicle access under the bridge will be maintained at all times.
