We have been working hard on your behalf to raise all of the concerns directly to Essex County Council about the cycle lane. The latest design proposes the lane will only be down the west side of the road (odd numbers) rather than split as per the previous design.
The latest proposals from Essex County Council can be seen below in 4 PDF documents below:
Work to remove trees will begin on 2nd March on the east side of the road (even numbers) and these trees will be replaced later in the year.
Work on the cycle lane will begin on 7th March and residents may be directly affected by the works. Some driveway access may become blocked or parking inaccessible. Essex County Council have assured us they will write to residents directly.
We must be clear that we are not in support of this cycle lane whatsoever, have never requested it and believe the funding could be better spend on other cycling projects in our area. However, Government have given the £750k of funding to Essex County Council for this specific project and therefore they must spend it only on this project.
If you have any queries or concerns regarding this or any other matter, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
