The roundabout will be resurfaced and the white lining renewed to provide drivers with safe and reliable journeys. It will involve 3 weeks of overnight closures on the roundabout and approaches with clearly signed diversions in place.
Highways England project sponsor Ian Clabon said:
We will be resurfacing sections of the roundabout to improve journeys at this busy junction. We have carefully planned the work to be carried out overnight, when traffic flows are lowest, to minimise disruption.
The work will be carried out overnight, between 10pm and 5.30am Monday to Thursday and between 11pm and 6am on Friday nights.
The work will be carried out in 4 sections of the roundabout:
- north east quadrant – closing the clockwise entry slip road and the southbound A10 from Great Eastern Road
- south east quadrant – closing the anti-clockwise exit slip road, the southbound A10 between the junction 25 roundabout and Bullsmoor Lane and the southbound A10 from Great Eastern Road
- south west quadrant – closing the anti-clockwise entry slip road and the northbound A10 between Bullsmoor Lane and the junction 25 roundabout
- north west quadrant – closing the clockwise exit slip road and the northbound A10 from junction 25 roundabout to Great Eastern Road
Clearly signed diversions will be in place for each closure, either via the next M25 junction or via local roads.
Details of when each closure will be in place will be publicised in advance.
