Chelmsford High Street set to undergo extensive upgrade

New traffic restriction solutions, including rising bollards, will be among the numerous new changes that are set to transform Chelmsford High Street, according to a recent news report in the local media.

Chelmsford City Council and Essex County Council have combined to come up with a series of ideas for Tindal Square and the High Street including paving over the road outside Shire Hall and making it fully pedestrianised.

This would see a brand new public space created outside Shire Hall with paving, public seating, planting and a two-way cycle route.

A two-way cycle lane will also be implemented, and surrounding traffic will be re-routed. Tindal Street will also be made one-way southbound between Market Road and Bellmead for buses and deliveries.

There will also be rising bollards to grant access to deliveries for businesses between 6pm and 9am every day.
