HARLOW - walking and cycling improvements from the Velizy Avenue/First Avenue roundabout to Sheering Road

Closed 8 Nov 2023

Opened 16 Oct 2023


We are about to start designing proposed improvements to a walking and cycling route in Harlow- and we would love to hear your views. The route is around 4.5km and starts east of the Velizy Avenue roundabout and finishes at Sheering Road, passing along First Avenue/Mandela Avenue. 

Please note, while the route runs along Gilden Way, there are no improvements proposed to the existing shared cycleway/footway on Gilden Way.

Why your views matter

Before we share designs for the improvements, we want to ask you - the residents who live and work nearby - for feedback. This will help us understand what people think currently and what we need to consider as we plan the route. Please note that we can only use this funding for walking and cycling and it is for design of the route only. Funding for construction will need to be sought at a later date.

In early 2024, we will show you the designs and invite further feedback.

If you have any questions, or would like us to post a printed copy of the survey to you, please contact SGH.Routes@essex.gov.uk.

The survey is open until Wednesday 8th November. Thank you for taking part – we look forward to hearing your views.
