A message from Highways England

A12 junction 13 Ingatestone

I am writing to provide you with details about maintenance work we will soon be carrying out to the A12 junction 13 southbound exit slip road at Ingatestone, to the south west of Chelmsford. This scheme forms part of a wider package of works to deliver essential maintenance and improvements on A12, A11, A14 and A120 in Essex and Suffolk.

This work involves the renewal of road markings and signage.

We will start this work on 20 November and plan to be finished on 24 November.

We will be working overnight between Monday to Friday 8pm to 6am.

Traffic restrictions

To complete this work safely and minimise disruption to the travelling public there will be overnight closures in place on junction 13 southbound slip road.

Road users wishing to leave the A12 at junction 13 will be diverted to junction 12 where they can return to junction 13 and leave the A12 via the junction 13 northbound exit slip road.

We have written to local residents to inform them of these improvements and we would be grateful if you would publicise the details to your parishioners through newsletters and other communications where appropriate.
