Circular route connecting Epping Forest, West Loughton & Debden (CAP App.I.13.1)
Many people find the prospect of cycling on the A104 Epping New Road intimidating. This scheme could offer a quieter and perceivably safer primarily off-road route linking potential scheme 8.2 and the A104 via Loughton Camp and Golding’s Hill to Debden Green and a quiet on-road route south to Hillyfields, which then links in with potential schemes 12.1 and 12.2 leading to Debden itself.
* Provision of a Quiet Lane Route as a less stressful and perceivably safer primarily off-road route alternative to the A104 Epping New Road
* The scheme could form part of a circular
route around the Loughton and Debden area. Section 1 to the north-west of Loughton would help to link up potential schemes in the west and the A104 via Loughton Camp and Golding’s Hill with Debden Green.
* From Debden Green a second section comprising a quiet on-road route could then be provided along Debden Road and England’s Lane, heading south to Hillyfields or west along Clays Lane, which then links in with potential schemes 12.1 and 12.2 leading to Debden itself, and on- road schemes 10 and 1 leading back to Loughton and Buckhurst Hill.
