A12 Coleman’s Bridge

4th July 2017

Following from the tragic accident at Coleman’s Bridge earlier this year, Priti has been in regular contact with Highways England for updates on the conclusion of the repair works to Coleman’s Bridge over the A12 and has been calling for the full opening of the bridge as soon as possible. Priti commented:

“I am pleased to announce that after writing to Highways England, they informed me that the works to Coleman’s Bridge were successfully completed on 6 May 2017. The traffic restrictions will remain in place at the bridge whilst Essex County Council (ECC) carries out roadworks at the nearby Little Braxted Lane Junction.”

“As ECC are responsible for the continued delay, I can confirm that I have raised the issue directly with the Cabinet Member responsible for transport issues, Cllr Ian Grundy, requesting an update on the likely completion of these works and the removal of the traffic management items currently in place. I will be further informing residents of the response I receive from the Council on this issue.”

“Having travelled extensively along this bypass throughout this year, Priti understands the impact these highways disruptions have had on drivers who rely on this route and would urge anyone who has been affected by these ongoing works to contact her office directly.”
