Progress Road junction improvement - update
Published Friday 12th November 10 in Council - news and information releases news
The junction improvements currently underway at Progress Road as part of the Better Southend initiative are progressing well and on schedule to complete by the end of March 2011.
Traffic Management has now been revised on the eastbound carriageway of the A127 to allow our workforce to carry out resurfacing works in the centre of the road.
Work has also commenced to construct a new lane for traffic turning left into The Fairway from the westbound carriageway of the A127.
In order to carry out these works lane closures will need to be implemented during the day time off-peak from 9.30am until 3.30pm and overnight between 8pm and 5am.
However, the noisier operations will be kept to a practical minimum after midnight. These works are expected to be completed by mid-December.
During these times drainage and kerb replacement works will also be carried out along The Fairway.
Work will also be carried out at the junction with Eastwood Old Road to realign kerbs and traffic islands to make turning into and out of this junction easier for motorists.
Southend-on-Sea Borough Council apologises for any inconvenience these works may cause and would like to thank residents for their patience during this essential work.
