Essex County Council is encouraging businesses to have their say on an ambitious package of measures to re-design the Army and Navy junction in Chelmsford and transform the way people travel in the city.
Having thoroughly assessed a number of potential junction layouts and sustainable transport improvements, the council is now running a public consultation to help shape the final scheme.
The consultation focuses on two junction options – a hamburger roundabout (a roundabout with a road through the centre of it) and separate T-junctions, which are part of a proposed wider Army and Navy Sustainable Transport Package. This also includes a 350-space expansion of Sandon Park and Ride, plus a new Park and Ride site to the west of Chelmsford in Widford.

In addition, the proposals feature fully segregated and significantly enhanced walking and cycling facilities at ground-level at the junction, improved bus priority measures and further improvements for walking and cycling in Chelmsford, providing better options for people to travel and encouraging safer, greener, and healthier ways of getting around the city.
A virtual exhibition is available throughout the consultation, containing information about the proposals, as well as visualisations showing how the two junction layout options would look and work from the perspectives of different transport users.
For more information and to take part in the public consultation, please visit the Essex Highways website. The consultation is open until Sunday, 3 October.
