Planning: Eco-towns

Volume 703: debated on Thursday 10 July 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What estimate they have made of the effect of the construction of an eco-town at Elsenham on peak traffic flows on the M11, B1051, B1383 and A120. [HL4451]

A transport assessment of the impact of the proposed eco-town at Elsenham is being carried out. This will look at how development would impact on surrounding road and public transport networks and how modal shift and reductions in travel could be achieved. At present, no final estimate can be made of the effect of an eco-town development on the roads in question, although an initial assessment is available on the Department for Communities and Local Government website.
