Roadworks - Start date delayed


Notification of Roadworks on Broomfield Hospital Approach Road

The developer of the land on hospital approach has now commenced its development which includes enabling road works to enable a new vehicle access junction into the new housing development. You will now have seen the signage on the Approach Road providing notification of the works.

The Trust has worked closely with the contractors who will be undertaking these works and they are aware of the Trust’s peak access requirements as well as the requirements for emergency access to the site. 

Details of the works:

Construction period: 

Start date to works delayed with no potential start date available. Essex Highways will inform the Trust when final dates for the works have been agreed.   

Times the works will take place

Works will generally take place between 08:00am and 19:00pm,  Monday to Friday and between 08:00am and 13:00pm on Saturdays. 

Lane closure & pedestrian access

During the works there will be periods when a lane closure will be needed to enable the works.  When this will be required, it will be in effect from 09:00am to 15:00pm only to reduce the impact of the works. More details will be available at a later date regarding the planned dates for the lane closures to be in place – when this information is available further communications will be sent out.

Temporary traffic lights control will be in use during these times. Temporary traffic lights will be manned to ensure appropriate access for emergency vehicles and others that need to access to hospital urgently. 

Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the duration of the works.

Will the works impact your journey?

For the duration of the works, please allow additional times for your journey.
