Notice is hereby given that the Essex County Council intends, not less than seven days from the date of this notice, to make the above Order under section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.

Effect of the order:

Bateman Road/Red Barn Road/Chapel Road, Brightlingsea

From Bateman Road’s junction with  B1029 Church Road to Chapel Road’s junction with Hurst Green, a distance of approximately 1509 metres.

1 . A temporary ‘No Stopping’ restriction will be introduced on both sides of the carriageway on the above lengths of roads for the duration of the closure to facilitate the works. Signs will be installed indicating when the No Stopping restriction will be in force.

The Essex County Council (Tendring District) (Permitted Parking Area and Special Parking Area) (Consolidation) Order 2008 will be temporarily amended to include the temporary ‘No Stopping at Any Time’ restriction and suspend any existing parking and waiting restrictions on the above lengths of roads only. All other restrictions and exemptions contained in the aforementioned Order and Amendments to that Order shall remain in force.

The works being undertaken will take place within an 18 month period from 3 January 2017, exact dates will be specified on The roads will be closed to facilitate each phase and then re-opened to the public. Access will be maintained for pedestrians and emergency services. Diversion routes will be signed at each location and residents will be informed of the dates of each phase via letter/leaflet drop and advanced warning signs on the road.

Phase One

Pre-surface patching works. These works comprise filling any surface defects and raising/ replacing worn iron works (manhole covers and gulley’s) as well as removal of cat’s eyes if present.

Phase Two

Surface dressing. The process entails spraying the road with bitumen and covering it with granite chippings, after which the road is then rolled, which along with the action of the traffic, embeds the chippings into the surface. The road will be swept within 48 hours and after 7 days. The bitumen part of the surface dressing as well as securing the chippings to the existing surface will seal the old road surface, thus preventing the ingress of water which causes deterioration of the road surface and will improve skid resistance.

Phase Three

  1. Reinstatement of white lines if required. Reinstatement of any road markings.
  2. Reinstatement of any road studs.

For all enquiries please contact our Contact Centre on 0345 603 7631.

The Order will come into effect on 3 January 2017 and may continue in force for 18 months or until the works have been completed, whichever is the earlier.
