Drivers in Colchester can enjoy quicker and easier journeys after four lanes opened on Colne Bank Avenue, Colchester.

 Completion of surfacing works on the southern footway of Colne Bank Avenue, Colchester, and removal of the site compound has enabled all four lanes to fully open to traffic  
 
Only minor, off-carriageway works remain.
 
Cllr Kevin Bentley, Deputy Leader for Essex County Council, said: “This is just one of a number of schemes which make up our £50 million investment in Colchester’s road, cycle and bus infrastructure.
 
“Colchester is not only Britain’s oldest recorded town, it is also currently one of its fastest growing.
 
“We have a responsibility to keep our road and transport network moving to help support this growth, not just now, but for years to come.

“I am delighted to be able to put any rumours of an August opening to bed as we look to help ease congestion for residents and businesses using this vital link road for Colchester and the surrounding area.
 
“I would like to extend our thanks to local residents for their patience during the works, which should bring much-needed benefits for both Colchester residents and local businesses.”
