This follows a previous allocation of £52,000 from their 2012/13 budget for the scheme, which is to cost £177,000 in total.
The scheme is one of 36 Epping Forest Local Highways Panel recommendations signed off this month: five safer roads (casualty reduction) schemes, four passenger transport schemes, two public rights of way schemes and 25 traffic management improvement schemes.
County Councillor Rodney L Bass, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transportation, said: “Local knowledge has led to a detailed list of schemes that will improve life for local people.”
Together the 36 schemes represent over £360,000 (approximately 52 per cent) of the panel’s £700,000 2014/15 budget.
Councillor John Knapman, Chairman of the Epping Forest Local Highways Panel, said: “Whether it is newly delivered traffic lights in Chigwell or a newly agreed crossing for The Crooked Mile in Waltham Abbey, these local schemes make real safety improvements to Epping Forest roads.”
It's not even on the main part of the crooked mile it's on the town centre road. Where they already have 4 crossings. Unreal!
