Planned May highways works

April 30, 2021

Up to eight roads across the borough are planned for repairs and resurfacing throughout May as the council continues with its planned winter highways works programme.

A full list of roads set for repairs between April 2021 and March 2022 was released in March 2021, as the council’s highways contractor, Marlborough, will be repairing and relaying full roads and stretches of roads that require immediate attention.

Works for the following roads are planned throughout May.

Planned duration of works – days/nights

Length of road i.e full road/part road

Lansdowne Avenue 4 Days Full Road

Rampart Terrace 1 Day Part Road - Georges Street to Dane Street
Richmond Avenue 4 Days Part Road - St Andrews Road to Caulfield Road

A full list of the 30 roads and 31 pavements set to be resurfaced in 2021/22, can be found on the council’s website: https://www.southend.gov.uk/resurfacing

All road closures will be clearly signposted two weeks before work takes place. All work is dependent on the weather, as crews are not able to lay roads in adverse weather.

How we prioritise, repair and resurfacing works

The areas have gone through a strict quality check in line with the council’s procedure, which is based on various risks, and in accordance with the Highways Code of Practice. This procedure considers various items including road condition, bus routes, key routes, claims made, incidents, and flood risk.
