HARLOW and Gilston Park are showcasing transport plans as part of a six-week consultation on the new garden town.
Gilston Park is a new estate of around 8,500 homes planned to be built directly to the north of Harlow. Leisure, health and community options are being devised, and there is a proposed investment of £500 million into infrastructure.
The consultation on the strategy will go over all transport options in order to lessen the environmental impact.
Plans include establishing a new junction on the M11 North East of Harlow, plus a network of cycle paths and walking routes, as well as a fast and frequent bus service.
The Gilston Park website states: “There will be a regular bus service, improved walking and cycling connections and a potential northern pedestrian access to Harlow Town train station.
Gilston Park Estate will be a connected series of walkable villages. It will open up access to the countryside and to new recreation facilities.”
Residents and businesses will be able to discuss the travel propositions directly with Harlow Council partners in the Harvey Centre tomorrow, Saturday (February 8) between 10am and 4pm.
Other day events will be announced via the Gilston Park website at: https://gilstonparkestate.com/
