Witham cyclists need a voice

  • The authorities are clueless about what matters to Witham cyclists. Completely lost the plot.
  • The authorities have their own agendas and need pushing. Waffle and waste.
  • Cyclists are being left out when it comes to spending and action. Fine words but feeble results.
  • Big business is conniving with the county council behind closed doors to clobber cycling in Maltings lane

Review of Witham Cycle Network (All pdf files. About 1Mb in total)
We were asked by Essex County Council to look at the current state of affairs. We did this and went on to say what ought to be done instead. This isn't just lines on maps but a closely argued set of proposals. Including:
  • Proper survey of hazard spots.
  • Use the rail-trail for commuters, especially to the industrial estates
  • Ensure that the massive Maltings lane developments do not clobber high speed cycling and cripple estate permeability.
  • Create a direct, off-road link between Witham and Silver end
  • Ensure that the Hatfield Peverel link road plans are redesigned to eliminate 3 roundabouts
  • Use small amounts of money to make big improvements
This is a must-read report for anyone interested in the future of cycling in Witham
