Road users and local residents are invited to attend a public information exhibition in Essex next week to find out more about the construction of the new viaduct and the demolition of the existing viaduct in Chelmsford.

The exhibition will be held at Conference Room, Moulsham Mill, Parkway, Chelmsford, CM2 7PX, on Tuesday 17 March from 4pm to 8pm.

The Highways Agency project team, designers AECOM and contractor Graham Construction will be on hand to answer questions and explain the scheme, which is designed to increase the capacity along the Chelmer Viaduct, reduce congestion, increase safety and improve journey times.

Main construction work is due to start next week.
