Epping Forest traffic plans go public

Public exhibitions on the Epping Forest Transport Strategy are being held this month to explore options for reducing traffic impact in the open space.

Essex County Council and The City of London Corporation are leading the series of public exhibitions to provide information on the Epping Forest Transport Strategy 2009-2016.

The aim of the strategy is to investigate improvements to safety and accessibility, reduce adverse environmental impacts, and to assist with the re-establishment of cattle grazing.

The Epping Forest Transport Strategy aims to restore some of the rural character to the roads in and around the forest.

City of London's Epping Forest Committee chairman Wendy Mead said: "It is our interest to protect Epping Forest and ensure its future.

"This is exactly why we would like to persuade everyone who drives through or visits the forest to consider changes to the way they travel."
