DRIVERS in Maldon are urged to plan their routes as roadworks are expected over the coming weeks.

From Saturday (April 10), Station Road in Wickham Bishops will be closed for two days from its junction with Station Road for 125m to the west.

This is so UK Power Networks can undertake new connection works.

Alternative routes can be found in Station Road, Church Road, Blacksmiths Lane, Maypole Road, Langford Road, Langford Road Roundabout, Maldon Road, Witham Road and The Street.

On Monday (April 12), Willow Grove in South Woodham Ferrers will be closed from its junction with Fen roundabout for 150m. The 11-day closure is for Essex and Suffolk Water to undertake new connection works.

On Wednesday (April 14), Bumfords Lane between Hatfield Peverel and Ulting will be closed from 510m west of the Crouchmans Farm Road junction for 260m south so BT can replace poles.
