Chelmsford North Action Group (NAG)

Chelmsford to be engulfed by huge motorways connecting the Channel Ports, via a new Lower Thames Crossing, A130, on to Stansted, M11 and A14. The new A130 at Boreham, Essex Regiment Way and north will damage Lt Waltham, Boreham, Barnston, Ford End, Chatham Green. Lt. Waltham Outer M25 Action Group were criticised for warning about this in mid 2006. It will happen - official Essex and Kent County Council October 2006. And with 16,000 new homes coming to Chelmsford? Join the debate!

Lower Thames Crossing - Proposed New Routes?? January 2007

The adjacent map (double click on the map to enlarge) is of uncertain origin but we believe it may be significant in that it shows a probable location for the northern/Essex side of the proposed Lower Thames Crossing in the Canvey area.
Note the box in the aproximate centre of the map relating to the Lower Thames Crossing which it calls "potential multi-modal national/regional/local cross-river link".
IF this map is in anyway accurate, it would confirm our earlier suggestion that the Chelmsford A130 is part of an Outer M25-like road. We dueduce this based on observation of routes being developed, especially the A249 in Kent to the Isle of Sheppey - a motorway style road going nowhere unless it's to connect up with a new Lower Thames Crossing AND on the Essex side it shows the existing new A130 from the general area of north of Canvey to the A12 near Sandon Village, Chelmsford.
