A12 junction 29 (Colchester) to 32a (Capel St Mary South)
I am writing to tell you that we plan to carry out surveys on the A12 between junction 29 and 32a. These surveys will be to measure the width of the carriageway ahead of the main works which are due to take place later this year. We plan to complete the surveys over 2 nights on Thursday 5 and Friday 6 January. We will work between 9pm and 5am, weather permitting.
Closures and diversions
To carry out the work safely, we will need to close the A12 and divert traffic as detailed below:
- A12 northbound closure between 29 (Colchester) and 31 (Holton St Mary) – Thursday 5 January.
- A12 southbound closure between junction 32a (Holton St Mary) to 29 (Colchester) – Friday 6 January.
Whilst these closures are in place, southbound traffic will be diverted via Ipswich Road, St Andrews Avenue & the A137. Northbound traffic will follow the same diversion but in reverse as shown in the diagrams above.
