Gary Congram has an e-petition on the County Council website that onlineFOCUS readers might be interested in signing:
We wish a traffic analysis to be conducted for 7 consecutive days of Lower Road, Ferry Road, Hullbridge Road and Watery Lane at a time when all roads are functional and no school or public holidays are happening during this period. Previous analysis have been done between Sept and Nov.,
In accordance with the Essex Resilience program and also community safety the community of Hullbridge would like to understand and identify the risks to them relating to the local highways. In order to achieve this the community need to understand, volume of traffic, types of traffic, speed of traffic, per each direction on the above mentioned roads. This needs to be per hour, per day. The community believe there has been a significant increase in the past 5 years of vehicles passing through the village especially HGV’s. The services infrastructure for the village and surrounding area run along and under these roads and some were built and not upgraded since the 1930’s and 50’s. As a result there has been a number of breakages in pipe work. There is also an increase in traffic accidents being reported as per essex highways Traffweb application http://www.essexworkstraffweb.org.uk/main.html#
