About the Scheme
The Great Baddow to City Centre Cycle Route is one of the schemes within the Chelmsford City Growth Package (CCGP). This scheme is designed to encourage more people to use cycling as an alternative means of transport into the city centre and local shops and amenities.
These improvement works include new signage for cyclists and pedestrians to navigate their way to and from the city. The upgrade will, predominantly, see work in a west-to-east manner; starting close to Baddow Road car park, heading through the Army and Navy subway, followed by east of Army and Navy (Meadgate Terrace to Jeffery Road).
Preliminary works have already begun with the main works on the project due to begin imminently. Whilst the timing is coincidental to the closure of the Army and Navy flyover, these works are limited to the subway at the roundabout and so will not affect motorist traffic. Proposed upgrades include new signs, mirrors and handrails.
While this work is unconnected to the Army and Navy roundabout itself, the scheme will pass through it. Future designs of the Army and Navy will consider provision for cyclists.
