About the works
As part of Essex County Council’s commitment to improve the provision for cyclists between Great Waltham and Chelmsford City Centre, preparations are in place to carry out works on the first phase of the proposed route. This is described as Section two on the Great Waltham to City Centre Cycle Route webpage.
Marlborough Highways will begin construction from July 2021 to create a new, off-road facility from Goulton Road in Broomfield across a mixture of agricultural land and existing footpaths to the junction with Nash Drive, and ultimately Broomfield Hospital.
This will provide a new, safe link for people who cycle between the hospital, Chelmer Valley High School and the surrounding residential areas.
These works are part of the package of improvements originally consulted on in 2017 as part of the Chelmsford City Growth Package.
How it will affect you
Works began on Monday 19 July 2021 and are expected to take approximately 16 weeks to complete.
Initially work will be undertaken to construct a haul road which will be used to accommodate Marlborough’s vehicles and farm machinery from the site entrance in Church Green to an area that will be the works compound, which is currently a playing field next to Chelmer Valley High School. The road and compound will be in situ for the duration of the works.
Please take additional care in the local area and be aware of vehicle movements into and out of Church Green.
Further details about these works and updates will be published on this webpage in the future as information becomes available and the project progresses.
Please note that the programme may be subject to change if affected by poor weather or if unexpected issues arise.
We aim to keep the community updated via this webpage and site signage. For details about this and other roadworks in the area please visit: one.network and the @essexhighways twitter feed.
