About the scheme

As part the planning permission (18/00443/OUT & 20/00846/RES) granted by Maldon District Council for the development of a Retirement Village off Maldon Road in Burnham-on-Crouch, a new road junction will be constructed along with pedestrian access.

Burnham Waters will be widening Maldon Road to create the new staggered right-turn ghost island junction into their new development and to the existing junction for Ferry Road, which will also be slightly widened to manage traffic generated from the new development.

A new 2 metre wide footway link will be created to provide pedestrian access on the southern side of Maldon Road from the entrance to Public Footpath route 1 to the local curry house, Dhan Shiri.

Each end of this new link will have a dropped kerb, tactile paving crossing point. The informal lay-by between these proposed crossing points will be formalised to a hard surfaced lay-by. These works also include introducing a new 40mph speed limit, along with new and realigned drainage facilities and new street lighting.

Barkemp Construction Ltd have been appointed by Waters Project Ltd to carry out these works.
