Detailed plans to transform the way people travel in Harlow have been revealed.
Designed to make it easier to leave the car at home and instead use public transport, cycle or walk, the proposals aim to make the town a safer, greener, healthier and more sustainable place to live and work.
Led by Essex County Council, the ‘North to Centre Sustainable Transport Corridor’ will see the creation of new and improved walking, cycling and rapid bus transit provision between Burnt Mill Roundabout and Harlow Town Centre.
Part of £172 million of funding granted by Homes England to support the Harlow and Gilston Garden Town programme, the corridor will ultimately connect the Gilston development in the north and the town centre in the south. It is also planned that other corridors will be created to connect the new and existing communities across the town.
