Chelmsford Cycling Action Group Meeting 19 July 2016

In attendance; John Hammond , Allan Trigg, Alex Marsh.

Apologies for absence: Andy Sweeting, Jim Fox.


Matters arising from last meeting.

Railway Station:       Alex reported the Cycle Hub at Chelmsford railway station is temporarily opening reduced hours from 7-10am.

Broomfield Hospital:       Nothing further.

South to North Route:        We still have not seen the report however it was tabled at the June Local Highways Panel meeting and will be read by the chairman, Vice Chair and Mike Mackrory who will present the report at the next LHP.

Springfield to Boreham Route:     The group are concerned that Bellway Homes are commited to widening Colchester Road between the White Hart lane Roundabout and the Drovers Way Roundabout. There is currently a cycle path running alongside the road and the group are concerned this will be lost as there is little further space for a wider road.

Officials' Reports:       Treasurer - Only change is for meeting room hire.

Cycling Issues:    

Abellio Greater Anglia Cycling Forum: Alex asked if there was anyone able to attend the meeting in Cambridge as he is unable to attend.

Central Park to New Writtle Street and Park Road Routes: - are there counts of use? The group were not aware that any counts had taken place.

ECC Potential Schemes List:

John will tell ECC our priorities are:

(a) South to North City Centre route from New London Road to New Street:

(b)Cycle route between Baddow  and city centre;

(c) Cycle route from the Avenues to Broomfield Hospital.

Next Meeting on 19 September.

Any Other Business: None.
