What you can do
We set up a mini- survey to establish if, on the one hand, you feel that the solution proposed by Essex Highways is sound or if, on the other, if you feel it will cause a major problem for all traffic trying to gain access to or leave the Dengie and will result in gridlock in South Woodham Ferrers.
The results (published on this website) overwhelmingly demonstrated that respondents thought the solution proposed by Essex Highways is unworkable.
One of the most helpful things you can do is to pass the details of this campaign to your family, friends and colleagues living or working in SWF or the Dengie ... and asking them to do the same. The higher our 'R number', the more successful we'll be,
It's always worth firing off letters and emails explaining your reasons why you think the current plans are impractical. There are some useful contact details below.
