Work is due to start on Saturday on the Army and Navy Parkway widening scheme in Chelmsford.

The work will cost around £1.5m to complete and is aimed at easing traffic congestion at the roundabout.

Under the scheme an extra lane along Parkway (A1060) will be built between the Army and Navy roundabout and the Odeon roundabout (A1060/A1099/Manor Road).

The scheme should be complete by March 2015.
