Culvert Works, Church Hill – The Parish Council have received the following notification from ECC Highways :
"Initially Essex Highways has decided to carryout the culvert lining works during the summer 2014 as it will be less disruptive to the traffic (school holidays) and convenient for the contractors due to low water flow in the stream. However, this proposal was delayed until now due to various approval process and we had to put on a hold to all the reinstatement works to the adjacent land & highway until we complete the lining works.
Please note that currently we do not have a specific starting date for the lining works. Therefore, Essex Highways has decided to carryout the following reinstatement works ASAP;
- Divert the Gas main from the existing duct spanning through the Culvert. This will enable us to carryout the future lining works without any excavations.
- Resurface the Church Hill (A1124) near the culvert area.
- Remove the temporary orange safety barriers along Church Hill and replace them with new fence.
- Other fencing works to the school.
We understand that things didn’t happen as planned and we really apologise for all the inconvenience caused. We are still aiming to complete the lining works in this financial year (If the weather permits) and will update you as soon as we have a confirmed starting date."
The Parish Council will endeavour to keep the parishioners informed of when the culvert works will take place.
