Action on various highway items in north Chelmsford have been announced, following a recent meeting of the Essex Highways Panel for Chelmsford. Cllr. Stephen Robinson has been pressing for action for some time.
Thames Avenue: grasscrete coming late 2021 to protect the grass and enable parking
Thames Ave, Clyde Cres and Cherwell Drive - grasscrete" to create new parking bays; Essex Highways hope to carry out the work in the October-December period.
Pentland Avenue - it was agreed to install bollards to prevent parking on the pavement at the side of KFC. To be part-funded from the fines paid by people parking on the yellow lines.
Valley Bridge (near Petersfield) - Keep Clear markings will hopefully be agreed at the September meeting of the panel.
Avon Road (northern end) - bollards to protect the grass are being assessed for viability and cost.
Chignal Road - Stephen has long argued for action to reduce speed here but this was not agreed. Essex Highways says that speeding is not a problem (their survey says average speed northbound is 30.3mph; southbound 27.6mph).
