Welcome to Essex

Safer, Greener, Healthier Braintree

Essex County Council and Braintree District Council have been working together with other key partners on improvements to the East - West route running from Station Approach to Panfield Lane. The proposals will encourage residents to walk or cycle for short local journeys and avoid using the car.

The route will improve facilities for cyclists and pedestrians including an introduction of a 20 mph speed limit, additional signage, cycle symbol marking and improvements to pedestrian crossings.  Full details of the scheme will be available when we launch our consultation in late May.
