Essex Highways will be replacing some of the existing temporary measures with more

aesthetically pleasing semi permeable measures including barriers, signs and cones, on

routes in the town centre from 21/07/2020. The above restrictions may be temporarily

removed overnight whilst works take place to facilitate the installation of these measures.

The Traffic measures under this notice may stay in force for 18 months. During this period

of time a decision will be taken as to whether to make these measures permanent at this

point a full public consultation will be undertaken.
