Drivers fear these roadworks will block a main route out of Maldon for over three months.

Works are scheduled to begin at Fambridge Road, next to its junction with Limebrook Way next Monday April 29.

Essex Highways state the works will not be done until August 12.

The road will be closed from the roundabout going to just before The Royal Oak.

Residents have already raised concerns the route's closure, teamed with the bridgeworks at Mundon Road could make it a "nightmare" to get in and out of Maldon.

Alternative routes have been supplied by Essex Highways, with Limebrook Way being an advised option.
