Safe crossings for London Road, Widford, Chelmsford.


The City of Chelmsford is expanding at an incredible rate.

Chelmsford City Highways are currently responsible for the roads and paths but we are reliably informed their main priority is to keep a flow of traffic through the city.

We are now in a catch-22 situation where more people are driving because they feel it is safer than walking or cycling even short distances because of disconnected foot and cycle paths. One particularly and increasingly dangerous crossing site is the Dual Carriageway of London Road,Widford, where it has become increasingly difficult for young and old alike to cross the road safely in order to access the Industrial estate, local church and Hylands Park.

We the undersigned request Essex County Council to install suitable, safe crossings in London Road, Widford, Chelmsford.
