Essex County Councillor welcomes Harlow and Gilston Garden Town transport strategy.

News / Mon 3rd Feb 2020 pm29 08:13pm

AN Essex County Councillor representing Harlow has welcomed an upcoming public consultation on the Harlow and Gilston Garden Town (HGGT) transport strategy.

Cllr Michael Hardware said: “The transport strategy launched for consultation today is a positive step in the right direction and offers a real opportunity to change Harlow for the better. It sets out the shift that needs to be seen if we are going to make a real difference in the town in terms of travel and congestion.

“Improving public transport and encouraging more people to walk and cycle, so shifting away from over-reliance on the private car, is key to this. Not only will this reduce our cumulative carbon footprint, it will ease the existing traffic congestion around our town.

“But to achieve this, we need to see credible alternatives, we need to see innovation and we need to see investment.

“So, we are calling upon Harlow Council to work with us at Essex County Council to come up with bold, different and groundbreaking schemes which will provide the alternatives to achieve these laudable aims.”

Micheal, as a you are both an Essex County Councillor and a Harlow District Councillor - you will know full well that both organisations are fully signed up to and actively working on "bold, different and groundbreaking schemes". The Harlow and Gilston Garden Town Transport Strategy illustrates their positive approach and thinking. So how about giving Harlow DC some credit for the work undertaken so far.
