Public exhibition to showcase plans for Junction 7a on M11

HARLOW has significant traffic congestion problems during peak times which will get worse as Harlow grows.

A solution is needed to reduce the increasing strain on the local and wider road network, a situation which is exacerbated by the very limited connections to the wider road network. For instance, there is only one local connection to the M11, at Junction 7, and this is already very busy.

Essex County Council, as highway authority, has been investigating options to improve access into and out of the Harlow area, including options for a new connection to the M11 between Junctions 7 and 8, ‘Junction 7A’.

There will be a series of exhibitions to present the current status of these investigations, and to show the options being considered. These will include the proposals for the new junction on the M11, and the likely effects on the surrounding area, including Gilden Way and The Campions.

Three staffed public exhibitions will be held in the east Harlow area during July and will be open to all. They have been designed to provide current information about all of the options being considered, and to explain where in the planning process we are. They will also show the steps involved in selecting the preferred route option and set out the timetable for when and how Essex County Council will be formally consulting on this.

The events will be held over two weeks at the following locations in east Harlow:
