Colchester Walking and Cycling

Essex County Council are developing proposals to better connect key points in the city through improved walking and cycling infrastructure. One of the routes identified through the council’s ‘Local Walking and Cycling Infrastructure Plan’, LCWIP 4 is an east-west route connecting the city centre to the university and Greenstead.

This particular scheme was also identified and formed part of Colchester Borough Council’s successful £19.2m Town Deal funding package, recognising its importance in boosting connectivity into and around the city.

Travelling along East Hill, before crossing into the Moors at East Bay and heading to Haddon Park, the Hythe and Greenstead Road, the route crosses Colne Causeway, where it will head to the university through Greenstead or, in the future, on to the new Garden Community.

At this stage, we are focussing on the East Hill section of the route. A consultation on the East Hill proposals ran from 23 November 2022 to 20 January 2023, details on the results of the consultation can be found in our consultation report and promoter's response.

For any questions about the route please contact the project team at activetravel@essexhighways.org.
