After a few weeks of the Ipswich Raod & Harwich Road roadworks, Colchester is suffering.
The endless queues are taking their toll on businesses, deliveries & individuals trying to get around.
The 15+ month schedule isn't acceptable.
We need to petition Kevin Bentley Head of Essex Highways for Essex County Council, to get this project looked at again. No longer can we tolerate 4 men working there and the site empty at weekends and after 3pm. Imagine the chaos at Christmas when everyone is in their car.
I think we should show the strength of feeling by collating a list of people unhappy with this scheme which may or may not work.
Please share this as much as you can.

Anyway tomorrow morning 31/10/18 at 730am, tune into BBC Essex where they will debaribgvthis with a prominent Councillor. You can even phone in and tell them what this misery is meaning to you and your life.
Keep up the pressure - they are coming out of the woodwork.
