As from 15 March 2011 road users will benefit from improved journey times and reduced congestion on the A414 in Harlow thanks to the opening of the new ‘Hamburger’ junction.
Located at the junction of the A414 with Southern Way in Harlow, the ‘Hamburger’ will allow the major flow of traffic to travel straight across the roundabout under signal control.
The new junction is part of the improvement scheme being carried out to the A414 in Harlow, between the M11 Hastingwood Roundabout and Southern Way Junction.
The scheme consists of the following improvements:
- Dual carriageway between M11 Junction 7 and Southern Way.
- Right turn lane into London Road
- Replacement underpass to provide improved pedestrian/cycle access to Latton Common
- Extended underpass at Southern Way
- Improved cycling and walking facility on western side of A414 between M11 Junction 7 to Southern Way
- Energy efficient lighting
Essex County Council successfully applied for £9.9m in funding from the Homes & Communities Agency to carry out the scheme. The A414 is Harlow’s main link with the M11 and used by around 50,000 motorists daily.
The overall scheme is near to completion, with final work taking place in the coming weeks.
Surfacing work will take place at the hamburger junction from 18 April 2011 for 4 nights. There will be no access between the A414 and Southern Way west and east between the hours of 9pm and 5am. Signed diversion routes will be in place.
