Road set to close for eight weeks to fit new water main

First published in News

Work on a major water supply project could cause traffic chaos as a road is set to close for eight weeks.

Panfield Lane will be closed in both directions from July 29 to install a 560mm diameter water main to cope with extra demand.

The first stage will close the road from Coldnailhurst Avenue roundabout to Porters Field and the second phase will close the road from Porters Field roundabout to the junction with Pegasus Way.

Business owners in the area fear the roadworks could rob them of customers.

Another traffic fiasco coming to Braintree. Still with thousands of new houses in the pipeline things will only get worse. The infrastructure is groaning and getting about Town even out of rush hour can be a problem. If ever a ban on building new houses until the A120 and a A12 are upgraded it is now. Some days it takes 20 mins to get from Bocking to the Springwood Industrial Estate.
