Army and Navy Flyover Removal

Full video showing the removal of the Army and Navy Flyover, Chelmsford. After being a feature of Chelmsford’s skyline for more than 40 years, works to remove the flyover over the Army and Navy Roundabout were completed in April 2020. Work started in February 2020 with the steel and concrete flyover taken down section by section before being transported away for dismantling and recycling. All 15 of the structure's spans were removed overnight to minimise traffic disruption, while the two ramps were broken up and removed during the day time to avoid excessive noise at night.

A133 Colchester to Clacton Improvements

A133 Work finished at Weeley and Frating Roundabout – part of Colchester to Clacton improvements. Works to improve the A133, a key route providing a link to and from Colchester and the seaside resort of Clacton-on-Sea, have been successfully completed. Construction began in winter 2020 to widen the northern approach of Weeley Roundabout, and to introduce a new left-turn slip at the Frating Roundabout. Other modifications and safety improvements were also carried out on the roads.
