Pedestrianisation of Braintree town centre

Change to contractor

Updated Wednesday 21st April 2021.

We have now appointed the new contractor to finish the remaining stages of the construction work for the project.

They will start on site week commencing 19th April 2021 to resume construction work.

Works in each area of the town centre will be completed in a phased approach, starting off with the south of the High Street (from Timpson to Patrick & Menzies Opticians).

The latest timeline of scheduled works is available on our timeline webpage. The aim is to finish the whole project by the summer.

If you visit the town centre, please do follow any signage in place and the national guidance to keep yourself and others safe. This includes 2m social distancing where possible, wearing a face covering when visiting shops and washing/sanitising hands regularly.
