Safer, Greener, Healthier Wickford

The proposals look to support more walking and cycling in Wickford while reducing and slowing cars in a residential part of the town where increasing active travel could have a significant impact. Nevendon Road is a busy route through the town but is also the main access serving several local schools in what is a largely residential area. This means it sees a large number of car journeys as well as people walking and cycling. The proposals to create a new ‘liveable neighbourhood’ in this area will help create a safer environment, improve air quality, support greater health and wellbeing and tackle climate change.
