Downham Road, Ingatestone 


About the scheme

Arrangements have been made to carry out drainage works on Downham Road at the junction of Stock Road and going southbound stopping before Lower Stock Road.

This will involve drainage investigation works and either repair or replace where needed. In addition we will also will clear the ditches to relive the flooding along Downham Road.

The works

Works will take place from Monday 3 August 2020 and expected to take approximately four weeks to complete. Working hours will be between 8am to 5pm Monday to Sunday.

What is involved and how it may affect you

In order to support these works it will be necessary to close Downham Road for the duration of the works however, access will be maintained throughout. During working hours, banksmen will be at either end of the closure to guide traffic through. There may be a delay depending on the type of activity taking place at the time as barriers may need to be put in place for safety before granting access.  

During non-working hours the works area will be protected by barriers and access only signs will be in place.

Advance notices will be in place and appropriate diversions signed during closure periods.  We urge all drivers to take additional care during the works, allowing extra time, observing signage and traffic management in place.

Further information

Dates may be subject to change if affected by poor weather conditions or if unexpected issues arise.
