I RARELY venture into Hullbridge, but the roadworks in the area are truly a nightmare.

They are causing terrible delays for many people. I find it hard to understand how house builders and the county council can’t actually assess the likely impact before they start.

I understand work needs to be undertaken on all these new homes.

A little bit of consideration for those who live and work in the area really wouldn’t go amiss.
