Transport

A strategy to manage travel demand and minimise traffic impacts in existing towns and villages is a key aspect of the emerging plans.

A comprehensive Transport Assessment will be submitted with the planning applications. This will provide details of The Fairfield Partnership’s commitments to improving public transport and enhancing the existing road network where required.

The area already benefits from good rail connections. Investment in rail facilities, along with new and enhanced bus services, pedestrian and cycle routes, will ensure accessible and reliable alternatives to the car.

The site is also located close to the M11 and A120, providing access to the wider region.

Bypassing the Elsenham level crossing and creating a link road at Elsenham Cross will direct traffic down Hall Road and away from Elsenham and Stansted Mountfitchet. It will also divert some existing vehicles using these routes and transfer them onto more suitable roads.
