A special task force is being set up to find a "long-term solution" for problems at the notorious Army and Navy flyover in Chelmsford.
The 40-year-old flyover was closed for safety reasons last week after one of its supporting pillars was damaged.
The task force will be considering the flyover, roundabout and immediate road network. It will look at the potential options for the junction itself and the alternative sources of funding which relate to them.
Cllr Kevin Bentley, Essex County Council’s Deputy Leader, Vicky Ford, MP for Chelmsford, and Cllr Dick Madden have met in Westminster to discuss the plan.
Since the flyover's closure last week, engineers have been commissioned to conduct a full inspection of the structure.
This will allow the identification of any immediate work which is required and solutions to enable safe reopening.
Detailed inspections are carried out on a six-year cycle according to national guidance and this latest inspection has been bought forward three years following the closure of the flyover.
The task force will include representatives from Chelmsford City Council and the Local Enterprise Partnership.
