Two roadwork projects will be taking place in Castle Point this week.

Rushbottom Lane, in Benfleet, is closing for six consecutive nights from Tuesday, November 30.

The closure will be in place each night between 8pm and 5am.

The work will see a new traffic island added and the road re-aligned.

Emergency access will be maintained at all times, while Aldi shoppers will still be able to get to the store in Rushbottom Lane during opening hours.

A diversion route will be in place throughout the closure, with traffic diverted via Kents Hill Road North and Church Road.

Meanwhile, a three-week project is getting underway in Somnes Avenue, Canvey tomorrow.

The work is taking place near to Meppel Avenue and will see the existing pedestrian crossing revamped.

Other activities will include the installation of underground ducting across Somnes Avenue, repairs to the traffic island as well as replacing all above-ground equipment.

The work will take place Monday to Friday between 7pm and 5am.

There will be lane restrictions in place managed by temporary traffic lights to provide a safe working area for contractors.

Part of Meppel Avenue will be closed during working hours.

All traffic restrictions will be removed when work is not taking place.

A temporary controlled pedestrian crossing will be installed across Somnes Avenue during the works.

Essex Highways, which is responsible for the work, says dates may be subject to change if there is and weather or “unexpected issues” arise.
