Wickford Station Forecourt Improvements
Wickford Rail Station forecourt improvements have been completed, with only minor, off-carriageway works remaining.
The investment by Essex County Council provides an additional exit lane at the Station Approach junction with Station Avenue allowing easier access for buses, taxis, cyclists and pedestrians.
The smaller central island allows vehicles to manoeuver around the forecourt more easily. Motorcyclists and cyclists also benefit from more parking bays provided outside the station.
The scheme has formed part of the Basildon Integrated Transport package in partnership with Greater Anglia, aiming to increase sustainable travel by improving transport links and improving station accessibility.
