Welcome to the Highways Service Information Centre
Welcome to the Safer Greener Healthier web pages. Our aim is to make it as easy, safe and fun as possible for people in Essex to travel more sustainably - walking, cycling, e-scooting or taking the bus or train – especially for shorter journeys.
Our vision is to deliver safer, greener and healthier travel for current and future users of the transport network in Essex.
Up to 43% of car trips in Essex are under three miles, a journey which could, for many people be made on foot (which would take around 30 minutes) or on a bike (a 15-minute ride).
Create a road environment that is SAFER, encouraging more residents to cycle or walk, especially for shorter journeys.
Work up sustainable transport solutions to ensure that Essex reduces carbon emissions and delivers long-term GREENER benefits.
Deliver long-term public health benefits so that our residents become HEALTHIER.
By introducing, supporting and funding various projects across Essex which will encourage and make it easier for people to walk, cycle or scoot more, especially for shorter journeys. These include the introduction of new walking and cycle routes as part of the Active Travel Fund and trialling e-scooters.
Join us to make Essex one of the safest, greenest and healthiest places to live.
Help the planet and Essex by travelling sustainably. Switching from fossil-fuelled vehicles to sustainable travel (cycling, walking, wheeling or taking public transport), especially for shorter journeys, will cut congestion, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and other air pollutants that damage our health as well as our ecosystems.
