A busy roundabout close to the M25 in Epping Forest is among the roads set to be temporarily closed for roadworks.

A notice from Essex County Council in this week’s edition of the Guardian details the extent of the closures and other restrictions that may be introduced while the works are carried out.

All temporary closure notices last for up to 18 months and the dates when the restrictions will be implemented will be published on the One.network website and/or on road signs at or near the relevant locations.

The county council is intending to make an order to temporarily close Sewardstone Road Roundabout, Waltham Abbey, from the junctions with A121, A112, Sewardstone Road and Dowding Way, a distance of approximately 190m.

In addition to the closure, a temporary 30mph speed limit and ‘no waiting, no loading and no stopping’ restrictions will be introduced, while the 7.5 tonne weight limit will be suspended in sections of Sewardstone Road, Farm Hill Road and Honey Lane.

This order is due to take effect on February 24 and the closures will be carried out in a phased manner.

There will be three alternative routes while the works are carried out: via Meridian Way, Highbridge Street, Station Road, Eleanor Cross Road, Monarchs Way, Winston Churchill Way, M25, Honey Lane, Dowding Way and vice versa; via Sewardstone Road, Kings Head Hill, Station Road, Rangers Road, Epping New Road, Woodridden Hill, Honey Lane, Dowding Way and vice versa; and via Sewardstone Road, Farm Hill Road, Honey Lane, Dowding Way and vice versa.

A 19-day closure in Spring Lane, Loughton, is due to start on March 7 for new water connection works.

The road is set to be shut from its junction with Newnham Close to its junction with Summerfield Road, a distance of 75m.

The diversion will be via The Avenue, The Crescent, High Road and vice versa.

A section of Back Lane, Sheering, is due to be closed for five days from March 14 for new power connection works.

The closure is due to apply from 245m south-east of its junction with Sheering Lower Road for a distance of 200m in a south-easterly then north-easterly direction.

Motorists are advised to use The Street, Harlow Road, Sheering Road, Sheering Lower Road (with access only to Back Lane) and vice versa during the closure.
