An aerial video showcasing improvements to the public realm areas in Hadleigh Town Centre can now be viewed via the Essex Highways YouTube channel (also included below).

 

Hadleigh Town Centre has benefitted from public realm improvements designed to make shopping areas along London Road more attractive to shoppers and help ease traffic flows.  Henderson & Taylor successfully completed their works between August and October 2020 for Essex Highways.

The improvements include the installation of new paving slabs, kerbing for off-road parking along London Road along with refurbishment of existing bollards on the northern side and installation of similar new cast iron bollards to match on the southern side.

Two bus shelters have been removed and combined into a new double bus hard standing area which is designed to improve traffic flow on the route. A new bus shelter is due to be installed in February 2021. 

In preparation for a future upgrade of the traffic signals at the London Road / Rectory Road junction, ducting has also been installed within the pavement to reduce the likelihood of disturbing these areas when the traffic signal renewal takes place. We anticipate the traffic signal renewal will take place in the 2021/22 financial year. 

We would like to thank businesses, residents and Castle Point Borough Council for the support and co-operation shown during these activities.

About the scheme

Improvements to the public realm areas of Hadleigh town centre are planned from early September 2020, designed to enhance the quality and attractiveness of the town to shoppers.

Footway improvements are planned for the A13 London Road between the junction of New Road and Rectory Road and two bus stops will be combined into one double bus stop, located in close proximity to Morrisons Supermarket.  This is designed to improve traffic flows on the route.

These works have been funded by the A13 London Road, Hadleigh (175) CPT/0511/10 development and have been arranged with the support of Castle Point Borough Council.  

Works will be carried out in phases to limit local inconvenience.  Pedestrian routes will be available throughout our works with short detours where needed.   We will support businesses with access arrangements as much as possible while we carry out these improvements. Works have been planned with temporary traffic management to support appropriate Covid-19 social distancing measures in place for the public and the workforce.

In preparation for a future upgrade of the traffic signals at the London Road / Rectory Road junction, ducting will also be installed within the footways reducing the likelihood of disturbing these areas at a later date when these signal improvements take place.

Henderson & Taylor successfully completed their works between August and October 2020 for Essex Highways.
