If you haven’t looked at Countryside’s masterplan for “North of London Road” , you can find it on their website here.
You can also find their opinion on the traffic situation here. Key sentences:
The Local Highway Authority, Essex County Council, has confirmed that with improvement works, traffic from the development of 550 new homes can be accommodated on the local road network without having a negative impact on safety and capacity.
We have carried out a Transport Assessment that considers firstly the current operation of key junctions on London Road and Rawreth Lane, and secondly their future operation should the development go ahead, taking into account both a natural background increase in traffic, and traffic associated with other proposed developments in the area, to provide a robust assessments of effects.
The Transport Assessment recognises that there is existing queuing on London Road and at the Rawreth Lane/Hullbridge Road mini-roundabout, and it identifies a range of highway measures that could improve traffic flows and reduce queuing in these areas. Not all of the improvements identified in the Transport Assessment would be needed as a result of the traffic generation from the development. We would either implement appropriate highway improvements, or contribute financially to allow the Highway Authority to implement appropriate improvements, with the actual works selected from the range of possible improvements identified in the Transport Assessment, following further discussion with the Highway Authority and District Council.
We think residents will have their own views on this… We will obviously be examining this very very carefully.
