HARLOW RESIDENTS and businesses are being urged to have their say on the proposed M11 junction 7A before the exhibition ends on Friday January 31.
Visitors to exhibitions can learn more about the proposed new junction and comment on the proposals by using cards at the Harlow Civic Centre and Epping Library until the end of the month.
Staff will be available to provide further details and answer any questions at the exhibitions, with the next one taking place at the Harlow Civic Centre on Wednesday, January 15 from 2pm to 8pm.
Display boards will show how the new junction plans to join the existing road network in Harlow and the improvements needed to cater for the scheme and the future growth of the town.
The scheme is promoted by Essex Highways, a strategic partnership between Essex County Council and Ringway Jacobs.
County Councillor Rodney Bass, cabinet member for highways & transportation, said: “The current M11 junction 7 is at capacity, meaning it regularly suffers congestion and is a restriction on the future growth and development of Harlow. The proposed new junction looks to address this situation and also allows for the future growth and regeneration of Harlow, which could not happen without major road improvements.
“As with any travel improvement, it is important that people’s views and opinions are taken into consideration and I encourage as many people as possible to attend the exhibitions and have their say.”
Those not able to attend the exhibitions can find out more by visiting www.essex.gov.uk/junction7a where exhibition materials can be viewed.
