Essex Highways has closed Bakers Lane for the second stage of repairs to the road, where 300m of new kerbs have already been installed.

The road is expect to remain shut for ten days.

Resident access will be managed by a member of staff on site, but there may be some periods when driveway access is restricted.

Workers will be on hand to advise residents of where to park if their access is restricted.

More disruption is expected over the weekend and residents who are likely to need their vehicles are advised to park outside the closure area.

Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.
