Politics / Wed 26th Aug 2015 at 09:13am

ESSEX County Council is allocating £699,550 to the Epping Forest Local Highways Panel for 2015/16.

The money can spent on a variety of minor highway improvement schemes ranging from new zebra crossings and cycle paths to casualty reduction projects, passenger transport enhancements, public rights of way schemes and tackling congestion.

Schemes planned for Epping Forest include casualty reduction measures on the A113 Stanford Rivers Road, new advance lane merging road signs on the A1168 Chigwell Lane and a replacement bus shelter on Highbridge Street, Waltham Abbey.

Essex County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways Maintenance and Small Scheme Delivery, Cllr Eddie Johnson, said: “Our Local Highways Panels have contributed greatly to making the county’s roads safer by prioritising local works.”

Local Highways Panels (LHPs) are responsible for making recommendations for minor highway schemes in their areas. Panelists are county and district councillors who meet quarterly to discuss and consider worthy projects within their district or borough boundaries.
