Have your say: The A120/A133 Link Road and Rapid Transit System scheme
Last week saw the launch of a consultation on the new A120/A133 Link Road and Rapid Transit System schemes.
This follows a successful funding bid to enable the creation of the new Link Road and for the first stages of an RTS to be implemented linking up key parts of Colchester.
Within our consultation brochure we set out the differing route alignment options for both schemes and are looking for views to enable preferred options to be selected and more detailed design to take place.
We would like to invite you to take part in our public consultation as we are keen to hear your thoughts on the proposed idea.
All responses to the public consultation will be recorded in a consultation report and will be considered as part of the options selection process. The closing date for responses to the consultation is 11.59pm on Monday 16 December.
There are a number of ways you can get involved:
Online – You can find all the information on the consultation and a link to the online questionnaire at: Essex.gov.uk/Link-Road-and-Rapid-Transit
