Sustainable Transport is on the move in Harlow

Press Release

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.

Harlow Sustainable Transport Corridors

To support the development of the North to Centre Sustainable Transport Corridor scheme, we invited members of the public and interested parties to view and give their thoughts on the proposals. Thank you to everyone who took the time to participate.

The feedback provided on the design, and comments raised during our webinar sessions will be considered as the scheme continues to develop, and themes such as cyclist behaviour, pedestrian safety and bike security are areas which we will be looking to address where possible as the design develops.

Landscaping and the impact on the avenues of trees and the Town Park were also raised and we will continue to work closely with Harlow District Council and the Harlow Town Park Users Group in the future.

Please view the story map below for information about the North to Centre proposals. If you have any questions about the STC scheme please email the team.
