Works to seafront cycle tracks from Chalkwell Avenue

High friction surfaces will be replaced

SURFACES on cycle routes at Chalkwell seafront are set to be improved, alongside a raft of other improvements being funded by the Community infrastructure Levy (CIL).

Existing green high friction surfaces that have worn over time and are almost gone, between Chalkwell Avenue to Western Esplanade, will be redone, alongside the replacement of missing signs and bollards and cycle track markings from Chalkwell Avenue to Shoebury Common Road.

The first of these routes would be Leigh to Central Southend Quietway (north and south routes) and Shoeburyness to Southend Victoria Quietway.

The Local Cycling and Walking Plan that is currently being produced will build on these routes as well as introduce others.

These quieter routes would be sign posted and minimally lined where required.

Coun Carole Mulroney, cabinet member for environment, culture and tourism, said: “The CIL funding would speed up the delivery of the cycling measures and address a number of short-term issues and gaps in our cycling network as well as improvement requests from the cycling community. We have listened and we will act.”
