About the works

Preparations are being made to renew the traffic signals located on High Road, Pitsea. 

Works are due to start on Monday 13 September 2021 and expected to take approximately six weeks to complete.

We will be replacing the traffic signals before they become unreliable and fail to work properly and will be installing new extra low voltage equipment. The pedestrian facilities will also be upgraded from a pelican to puffin crossing. 

Activities will include the replacing or renewing underground cable ducts under the carriageway and pavements as well as replacing equipment above ground.

How it will affect you

The majority of the works will be carried out overnight between the hours of 9.00pm to 5.00am Monday to Friday with lane restrictions in place managed by temporary traffic signals to provide a safe working area while operatives are on site.

Traffic management will remain in place during the day to assist pedestrians crossing the road, but both lanes will be open to vehicles to keep traffic flowing.

Advance warning notices will be used to advertise the works.

Further information

Please note arrangements can sometimes be subject to change at short notice due to unsuitable weather conditions or if unexpected issues arise. The latest information will be reflected on site signage and this webpage.
