A133 Colchester – Clacton Improvements


Proposals include:

  • Safety Improvements – Implement variety of safety improvements between Frating roundabout and Progress Way roundabout. 
  • Frating Roundabout – Introduce left-turn slip from A133 (A120 Spur) to A133 (east) and modify roundabout and approaches to increase capacity.
  • Weeley Roundabout – Widen northbound approach, road marking and signage improvements

When will the work take place?

Main construction works at Weeley and Frating Roundabouts are anticipated to begin in late Autumn 2019 and will be undertaken in a phased approach over a period of approximately 16 weeks. 

Please note that dates and duration are indicative at this stage and may be subject to change.   

How will this affect you?

Throughout the various phases of the scheme temporary traffic management will be necessary and lane restrictions will be in place to support the works. 

Overnight closures may be required at different stages and locations along the route however these will be limited and advertised in advance on site signage as well as this webpage.  Residents and businesses directly affected by the works will be contacted separately.

While efforts will be made to keep traffic congestion to a minimum throughout these improvements, it is recognised that works will be undertaken in traffic sensitive areas and normal traffic flows will be disrupted.
