Welcome to the Highways Service Information Centre
The Braintree Integrated Transport Package (ITP) is a package of schemes with the aim of improving access to Braintree Town Centre. In addition to a number of traffic management measures for Braintree Town Centre, it comprises two key schemes on which Essex County Council will be engaging with the public next month (September 2018) in advance of an application for funding through the South East Local Enterprise Partnership Growth Fund Round 3 (SELEP3):
A number of improvements are proposed to enhance access to and from Braintree Rail Station as well as provide appropriate facilities for non-motorised users and local residents. The Station Approach proposals include:
The proposed improvements to Springwood Drive Roundabout involve widening the roundabout in order to help relieve existing traffic congestion and accommodate future traffic growth. The proposals include:
Braintree Station Access
Springwood Drive Roundabout
This scheme involves the creation of two new slip roads connecting Millennium Way (B1018) with the A120. In addition to providing improved access, the scheme is intended to help relieve congestion on the A120 at Galley’s Corner and to accommodate future growth in the region. The A120 forms an east-west route linking the M11 and Stansted Airport with the A12, Colchester and Harwich. Braintree is located half way along this corridor.
While not part of the Braintree ITP, the scheme is located to the south-east of Braintree and will also contribute to improving access to the town centre. We are therefore inviting you to view the plans for A120 Millennium Way Slips in conjunction with our public exhibitions.
Funding for this scheme has been secured through the Department for Transport’s National Productivity Investment Fund (NPIF) for the Local Road Network, with support from Highways England and Braintree District Council.
For further information on this scheme, please visit the Millennium Way Slips web page: www.essex.gov.uk/A120millenniumway
Public consultation on the Braintree ITP has now closed. The consultation was open for 6 weeks, from Monday 24 September to Monday 5 November 2018.
Two consultation events were held in Braintree during the consultation period, allowing stakeholders to view the proposals and ask questions.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the consultation. Feedback submitted is now being analysed and considered.
Additional information on the proposed improvements are available in the documents section below.
