AN important road link in Colne Engaine is set to close next week.

Brook Street is the main road out of the village which links to Halstead.

Now the road is set to be closed just beyond the junction with Shellcroft for two days next week as Anglian Water carries out works.

The works will see the water company insert a new water connection under the ground.

As a result, Anglian Water have taken out a two-day permit with work starting at 7.30am on Monday, September 14.

It is hoped the work will be completed by Wednesday, September 16.

The roadworks could cause disruption for Colne Engaine residents with the main road link to Halstead closed.

For an alternative route, residents can head south to Earls Colne before taking the A1124 west to Halstead.
