Local Transport Plans : You Can Change Them!

Keith Farnish | 08.06.2005 10:27 | Ecology | Free Spaces

The 2006-2011 Local Transport Plans are being published by all English Councils. They have to contain all potential road developments taking place in the area the plans cover. You can make sure they don't happen.

County Councils and Unitary Authorities are publishing the first drafts of their Local Transport Plans covering the period 2006-2011.

Initial responses to these plans at this early stage can make a big impression, and they are needed considering some of the plans include:

- Maldon to Witham Bypass
- North East Chelmsford Bypass (to enable more housing development)
- A120 Braintree-Marks Tey dualling
- A131 dualling
- A12 widening to 6 lanes between M25 and Colchester
- New or widened access roads to Southend Airport
