A 40-year-old flyover in Chelmsford is to be closed due to safety fears.

Essex County Council said the structure will shut for repairs from 21:00 BST after an inspection found one of the supporting columns was damaged.

Motorists in Chelmsford are being advised to expect delays once the main route into the city is shut to traffic.

The structure is metal, looks like some rickety old fair ground ride and has recently been suffering from concrete falling off it. Last time it closed, there were significant traffic problems. It’s a single lane bridge, and the direction changes during the day to help with commuter traffic into and out of town. The problem now is that the roundabout it bypasses will be severely overloaded, and traffic will back up a long way. It’s closed indefinitely. I would not be surprised if it never reopens in its current form again.
