Design Consultation 2020 Questions 1i and 1j

Before reading this post please consider reading  Design Consultation 2020 Step by Step if you haven’t already!

There is also further info on the official Highways England LTC consultation website, and on our website.

Please DO NOT copy and paste any content on our website (or anywhere else for that matter!) into your consultation response.  In 2016 HE lumped together 13,000 responses as 1 response as they considered them to be an organised group response as they used a template with a free comments box.  We do NOT want a repeat of that this time around, and they have warned us they will do the same again if they consider responses to be organised responses.

You may want to ask yourself (in no particular order):

  • Do you have any questions or comments about the fact that the development boundary stretches right up to junction 28 without any apparent explanation, and has been hidden away without any real detail?
  • Do you have concerns about Cranham Solar Farm being demolished? What about the implication of loss of green energy?
  • Do you have any comments about the maintenace access tracks?
  • What do you think about the fact that no noise barriers are proposed in this area?
  • What do you think about the amendments to walking, cycling, horse riding routes?
  • Are you concerned about the fact there will not be an option to safely cross on the south side of the J29 roundabout? Do you think the new footbridge over the A127 helps this?
  • How do you feel about all the additional land required for utilites works?
  • Are you concerned that Havering residents will not be entitled to an LTC local residents discount to use the crossing, despite the fact it impacts Havering?
  • Do you have concerns that the current junction 29 heading northbound on the M25 will be replaced with the new slip road as part of the new LTC/M25 junction, miles prior to the actual junction?
  • Do you have concerns over the new parallel road from the new LTC/M25 junction upto the J29 roundabout?
  • Do you have any concerns over the impacts that works in this area will have on local roads, and connectivity? inc M25 and A127
  • Is there anything else you have concerns over regarding this area of the proposed LTC route?
