TWO weeks of roadworks to the A127 began last night.

Part of the Fairglen interchange will be closed between 9pm and 5am every night until Monday April 7 to carry out a utility survey.

One lane will be closed during the work, which will also include work on the slip roads coming on and off the road.

Essex County Council’s highways department said delays were likely during the work.

It comes as lanes are also closed on the slip roads by the Dunton turn off.
