The Colchester 2014 Carnival on 19th July Starts in

Procession Route

Please note there will be a rolling road block in operation during this time. Further information is below.


Road Closure Information 19 July 2014 (detail to be confirmed during July 2014)

The forecasted procession route will be as follows:

Circulate Road North

Butt Road
Head Gate
Head Street
High Street

We will try to minimise the disruption to residents in the area of this route, but there will be some road closures before and after the above times, which will inevitably affect access to the streets above. 

Circular Road North will be closed between 11am and approximately 3.30pm.  We will permit limited access to Stable Road during this period, although access will be restricted.  Access will be required to be made via Napier Road end, and exit at the Circular Road West end.

We have consulted extensively with the Police and Colchester Borough Council and have designed the road closures to affects as few roads as possible. We believe that the best way to reduce disruption will be to operate road blocks on a rolling basis so that roads can be reopened quickly once the carnival passes by.

If you have any questions relating to these road closures, please contact us at
