Work to widen the existing footway on Boxted Road between United Way and the Colchester Park & Ride site is due to start on Tuesday 3 May.
The scheme will provide an unsegregated, shared footpath/cycleway on the existing eastern footpath along Boxted Road. The new path will enable cyclists and pedestrians to travel more safely between the Park and Ride site and the Colchester Community Stadium.
Work will be carried out during the hours of 07:30 to 17:30 Monday to Friday.
Due to the nature of these works traffic signals will be used on Boxted Road, so drivers may need to allow extra time for some journeys.
These improvements are part of a wider programme of investment in Colchester to improve the local roads, cycleways and footways.
