Plans underway to remove Army and Navy flyover 'as soon as practicable'

Councillors in Essex say they're working on plans to remove the Army and Navy flyover 'as soon as is practicable.'

Essex County Council last week announced that the Chelmsford flyover would stay closed to traffic after a detailed engineering report revealed new defects within its concrete foundations.

The council is now in the process of identifying and appointing a contractor to remove the structure.

Meanwhile, work is continues to assess long-term improvements to the Army junction.

The flyover cannot remain in its current condition, even with no traffic using it, so we will remove it as soon as is practicable.
