Alderton Hill Closure


28 July 2019

alderton-hill-closureAlderton Hill Bridge is undergoing bridge strengthening work during the school summer break. This means Alderton Hill is closed to all traffic between Roding Road and Old Station Road.

The closure is from Thursday 25 July to Friday 30 August.

See more on where the closure is and read detailed information from the County Council.

LRA Cllrs have been instrumental in getting Essex Highways to prepare better for this closure this year, particularly in getting the Brooklyn Avenue clearway better organised, in getting advance signs at Woodford Wells and the Wake Arms to deter through traffic, and a proper leaflet drop.

Essex Highways say they considered working only at night, but the noise and disruption to residents nearby precluded that.

We advise residents wherever possible not to bring vehicles into Loughton town centre, and to walk or cycle if they can.

Buses will also be affected.
- Route 167 will be diverted from the end of Roding Road via Brook Road/Brooklyn Avenue/High Road and Old Station Road. LRA Cllr Chris Pond has asked that it serve all stops on the diversion route including the Crown, Sainsbury's and Forest Road, to which Transport for London (TfL) have agreed.
- Route 66 will be diverted via the High Road and Traps Hill.
- Route 87 will be diverted via the High Road, Traps Hill and Alderton Hall Lane in both directions.
- Alderton Hill will not be served by routes 66 and 87.
