Just one week left to help shape Chelmsford's transport future

23 August 2017

There is still time to share your views on 30 schemes aimed at improving travel in and around Chelmsford.

 

The £15 million package of schemes called the Chelmsford City Growth Package aims to help improve road, cycle, bus and walking infrastructure across the city.

 

Residents have until midnight on 28 August to submit their views on the plans. 

 

This is just the first phase of works to create Chelmsford’s Future Transport Network and feedback given now will help prioritise which schemes get delivered.

 

Cllr Kevin Bentley, Deputy Leader of Essex County Council, said: “There is only a week left to make sure your views are heard on the future of Chelmsford’s transport network.

 

“We all know Chelmsford’s roads are almost at capacity and we have to think radically about new and innovative ways to free up our roads.

 

"There is something for everyone in the package of schemes we have proposed. We are simply asking people to give up just a couple of minutes of their time to tell us what they like, and don’t like, about the plans to help keep Chelmsford moving.

 

"This is just the first stage of a major rethink of transport infrastructure across Chelmsford as we cannot just build new roads to solve the problem.”

 

The Chelmsford City Growth Package documents and a simple response form are available to allow people to comment.

 

Paper copies of the consultation document are also available from County Hall, Chelmsford Library and Chelmsford City Council Civic Centre.
