Colchester Park and Ride and Bus Priority measures

Essex County Council has been awarded LTB funding for the Colchester Park & Ride & Bus Priority Measures scheme through the July 2014 announcement of LGF awards. This scheme is a key part of the North Colchester Growth Area package of transport measures, as detailed within the Colchester LDF Core Strategy.

The scheme will provide;  a 1,000 space Park & Ride (P&R) facility adjacent to A12 J28, a dedicated bus priority lane added to the existing capacity under the North Station rail bridge to ensure bus services are reliable and offer an attractive service, signal improvements along the Northern Approach corridor to improve P&R bus journey times, provision of high quality, dedicated and liveried P&R bus stop infrastructure, additional signage to promote access to the P&R site.
