Essex County Council to share bridge plans with Finchingfield community

5 February 2016

Essex County Council is preparing to share revised plans for the future of Finchingfield Bridge with local residents.
 
 
Following a public meeting held on 17 November 2015, Essex County Council has been reviewing options that will enable the crossing to remain safe and usable into the future, whilst respecting the unique features of the bridge, its essential use and its attractive environment.
 
 
Councillor Eddie Johnson, Cabinet Member for Highways Delivery, said: “We met with the community of Finchingfield towards the end of last year. Since then we have been looking at the options available to us, consulting with specialist engineers and considering local concerns and the recent petition, as part of our investigations. I am pleased to say that during February we will be sharing these plans with the community, including at a local public ‘drop-in’ exhibition and publication on Essex County Council’s website.”
 
 
The exhibition will take place on Wednesday, 17 February from 2pm – 7.15pm at Finchingfield Village Hall.
