National Highways is progressing plans for a concrete reconstruction scheme on the A120 between Horsley Cross and Wix, which forms part of our future years’ concrete roads programme.
Reconstruction will involve completely removing the concrete road surface and some of the foundations, before rebuilding the road and resurfacing it with asphalt.
When complete, the work will provide safety benefits and a smoother rider for road users, a reduction of noise pollution for local residents, as well as a new modern road with a 40 to 50-year lifespan that’ll be easier and quicker for us to repair in future.
In order to make sure we have the right information before we start, we’ll need to carry out a number of surveys to check the scheme boundaries and condition of the road.
For the safety of motorists and our workers, we’ll need to make full overnight closures on the A120 between Colchester Road and Harwich Road on the following dates:
Overnight Closures of the A120 in both directions between Colchester Road and Harwich Road on Wednesday 18 October to Friday 20 October 2023 from 10:30pm – 4:30am
During these road closures, we’ll need to divert traffic along the following routes:
Eastbound traffic will be diverted off the A120 at Horsley Cross Roundabout onto the B1035, then B1352 and Wix Road to re-join the A120 at Ramsey.
Westbound traffic will be diverted off the A120 at Ramsey onto the B1352, B1414, B1033 and the A133 to re-join the A120.
