Army and Navy Sustainable Transport Package

Closed 3 Oct 2021

Opened 9 Aug 2021

Overview

The Army and Navy Sustainable Transport Package is an unmissable opportunity to re-design the Army and Navy junction - a crucial gateway to Chelmsford – while also providing better options for people to travel and encouraging safer, greener, and healthier ways of getting around the city.

This public consultation focused on two junction options – a hamburger roundabout (a roundabout with a road through the centre of it) and separate T-junctions. The proposed Army and Navy Sustainable Transport Package also includes the proposed expansion of Sandon Park and Ride, plus a new Park and Ride site to the west of Chelmsford in Widford and significant walking and cycling improvements.

By delivering a comprehensive package of measures that encourage increased walking, cycling and Park and Ride travel, alongside an improved Army and Navy junction, we can provide a long-term and sustainable solution, improving journeys for everyone.

Why your views matter

We thoroughly assessed a number of potential junction layouts and sustainable transport improvements and asked you to help shape the final scheme by completing our public consultation.

We have not made any final decisions, and this was your chance to help us choose a preferred option and refine our final proposals.

What happens next

Now the consultation period has closed, we will analyse your feedback and use it to help inform our decision about a preferred junction option and any potential changes to our proposals.

A public consultation report will be published here and on our project webpage.

There are also various other factors which form part of the decision-making process and these are explained in our consultation materials.

Based on the current programme, we expect to agree a preferred option in winter 2021/2022 and submit an outline business case to the Department for Transport in Spring 2022.
