A major road in Harlow is set to be closed overnight for most of next week while works are carried out.

A notice from Essex County in this week’s edition of the Guardian details the closure of part of the A414 for five nights, 9pm to 5am, from Monday for carriageway patching works.

The road will be shut between the southern town boundary and Harlow Mill Roundabout, from its roundabout junction with Southern Way to both its junctions with Second Avenue, a distance of approximately 771m.

The alternative route for vehicles will be via Second Avenue, A414 between southern town boundary and Harlow Mill Roundabout, Tilwicks Road, Howard Way, Third Avenue, Katherine’s Way, Southern Way, Abercrombie Way and vice versa.

Meanwhile, the county council is also intending to make an order to close part of Stag Lane, Buckhurst Hill, from October 4 for mains replacement works.

The road is due to be closed from its junction with High Road to its junction with Epping New Road, a distance of approximately 190m, and the work is expected to take 26 days to complete.

The diversion will be via High Road, Church Road, Epping New Road and vice versa.

The dates of any closure may vary and these will be displayed on signs at the relevant location and/or on the one.network website.
