  • Reserved land adjacent to Northern Approach Road

    Created by Steven Moseley // 1 thread

    When Northern Approach Road was built land was set aside with a view to providing segregated bus lanes in the future.  It's not clear what current plans are, if any exist.

    Provision for cyclists should also be made on what is an important route between the Town Centre and North Station, and the Hospital, Mile End, the A12 J28 Park and Ride, and Severalls Business Park.  e.g. Cambridge's Guided Busway also has a shared use path alongside.

  • A120 to A133 Link Road and Rapid Transit System

    Created by Steven Moseley // 1 thread

    "Linking the A120 and A133 with a new road will unlock land to provide housing and business space, improving connectivity locally and within the wider region. It will serve a new Park and Choose site and manage traffic congestion going to Colchester Town Centre, the University of Essex and its Knowledge Gateway Technology and Research Park.

    A Rapid Transit System that will prioritise public transport on a key route through Colchester. It will enable housing and business growth, allowing new and existing residents to benefit from frequent, high-quality, reliable transport connecting to the key destinations within the town. These types of system have proved successful in other towns and cities, helping create a shift away from car travel. A recently implemented example of this is the Belfast Rapid Transit Glider.

    The system will service a new Park and Choose site on the proposed new community east of Colchester and help to better connect future growth areas with the rest of the town."
