WORK is due to start on widening Harwich Road.

As part of the Ipswich Road improvement scheme, Essex County Council and contractor Eurovia have announced the next phase.

Hoarding works on the Network Rail side of Ipswich Road roundabout are now expected to start around mid-November.

These works will be carried out at weekends and during the night.

The traffic managing will be installed and removed nightly.

There are no more planned road closures until the new year.

The next phase of construction will begin shortly. This will be at the north east section of Harwich Road North.
