About the scheme

Arrangements have been made to replace the traffic signals located on Ingrave Road, Brentwood.

The works

Works are due to start on Monday 10 January 2022 and expected to take approximately six weeks to complete.

We will be replacing the traffic signals at the junction before they become unreliable and fail to work properly and we will be installing new extra low voltage equipment which will help reduce our carbon footprint. The pedestrian facilities will also be upgraded.

Activities will include the replacing or renewing of underground cable ducts under the carriageway and pavements as well as upgrading the traffic signals and associated equipment.

What is involved and how it may affect you

The works will be carried out Monday to Friday between the hours of 8pm to 5am. Lane restrictions will be in place managed by temporary traffic signals to provide a safe working area while operatives are on site.

We anticipate that a limited number of full road closures on Ingrave Road will be required overnight to allow work to take place across the carriageway. Closure dates are currently being finalised and will be advertised using site signage.

We plan to reopen the road following each shift. Advance warning notices will be used to advertise the works and appropriate diversions in place during temporary road closures.

Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times and for safety a temporary controlled pedestrian crossing will be installed across Ingrave Road.

Further information

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

We aim to keep residents and businesses updated via this webpage and site signage. Information will also be shared with the local parish councils. For details about other roadworks in the area, please visit: One.network or the @essexhighways twitter feed.
