Please note that due to ongoing roadworks in Colchester, travel to and from Wivenhoe House may be interrupted. Here we have put together a handy guide to the latest information and some alternative routes
About the Ipswich Road, & Harwich Road Scheme
The scheme will see the replacement of the double roundabouts located at Ipswich Road and Harwich Road with a single roundabout at each location. The carriageway between Ipswich Road and Harwich Road junctions will also be widened to accommodate two formal lanes in each direction. The scheme will include upgrading existing pedestrian crossings to signal controlled crossings and general improvements to the current off-carriageway cycle and footway provisions.
The southern side of Ipswich Road, Colchester will be closed from 07.00 on 02/10/18 for a duration of 4 weeks. This is to allow Anglian water to safely undertake diversionary works across the main road. Full diversions will be put in place and signage will be symbolised with a square (as there is also a Highways England diversion in place for night works on the A12 which brings them through the works).
To view the official diversion please follow this link
Expected duaration 25 – 45 Mins
If travelling from the A12 we suggest that you take the A120 to Great Bromley. Take a slight left onto the A133 and follow the road through Frating and Elmstead. Image below
