UPDATE: School Lane, Gt Wigborough Closure

This will be good long-term news for all the residents and users of School Lane, Great Wigborough, even though it will be a nuisance in the short term.

Essex County Council have advised us that the whole of School Lane will be closed for five days from 2nd August 2010 for much needed repairs. The works will be subject to weather conditions and we will keep you posted as and when we hear anything further.

Our thanks are due to our Borough Councillors, Andrew Ellis and Kevin Bentley, who have agitated continuously to get these repairs undertaken as a priority when there are so many demands on limited resources. Guys – our suspensions and wheel rims and dodgy backs all thank you.

Update:

Essex County Council have now issued the Public notice in which they advise:

  • The closure is scheduled to be for 5 days (subject to weather);
  • The alternative route will be via Maldon Road – B1026 Layer Road and vice versa;
  • Access for emergency service vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians will be maintained at all times during the closure.
