We are advising supporters to allow plenty of time when travelling to Roots Hall for Tuesday’s Carabao Cup tie against Brentford.
Victoria Avenue will temporarily close southbound from Cuckoo Corner roundabout to its junction with Priory Crescent. The closure will commence at 7.30pm and run until 11.00pm.
The alternative route will be via A127 Prince Avenue, Hobleythick Lane, Prittlewell Chase, Fairfax Drive and vice versa.
Access for emergency vehicles, residents and pedestrians will be maintained where possible.
The closure is required for the safety of the public and workforce whilst repairs to a manhole in the carriageway take place.
Please leave enough time to get to the ground ahead of kick-off.
