A12 Ewell Footbridge

Scott Gaskin

We are repairing the bridge after it was damaged by a bridge strike.

There will be a full 24 hour closure of the A12 for 3 weekends. There will also be narrow lane running during the week with a 50 mph speed limit in place.

For information on road closures, go to our Roadworks finder.

  • take the A120 west to Braintree
  • take the A131 southbound through Great Notley
  • take the A130 southbound and then east around Chelmsford to re-join the A12
Diversion routes for pedestrians


Pedestrians who currently cross over Ewell Bridge from its connection with Windmill Hill will head southbound on Windmill Hill to the junction with Highfields Lane. They will then join Highfields Lane, heading towards Kelvedon crossing Maldon Road overbridge to the junction with Ewell Hall
Chase. Finally, they will join Ewell Hall Chase to meet up with the Public Right of Way in the vicinity of Ewell Hall Farm.

For those heading eastbound, the diversion route will be the reverse of the above.
