Welcome to Essex

Safer, Greener, Healthier Chelmsford

Essex County Council and Chelmsford City Council have been working together with other key partners on a proposed scheme involving a series of improvements. The proposed scheme is based on two routes.

Route 1

The proposed route starts at Chelmsford Station via New Writtle Road and Old Moulsham to Van Diemans Road. The main aim of the route is to provide a continous cycle route through the area. Improvements may include:

  • One way system with signing
  • Junction upgrades
  • Introduction of a new Toucan crossing

Route 2

The proposed route starts in Market Road to Victoria Road and Chelmer Road/ Sandford Road to Springfield Park Road. Proposed improvements may include:

  • With flow cycle improvements
  • Contraflow cycle route
  • Change of priority at a junction area
  • On carriageway improvements
  • Replacement of worn/incorrect signs
  • Improvements to existing signalised junction

Full details will be available when we launch our consultation in late May.
