Highways England public consultation on M25 junction 28 improvements

Category: Travel 51

Highways England has released information on the improvements they are proposing to junction 28 and the dates of the public consultations.

The scheme brochure explains

Junction 28 plays a vital role connecting the M25 with the A12, as well as providing local access to Brentwood via the A1023 (Brook Street).

It’s a heavily used junction which features a roundabout mainly controlled by traffic lights.

Up to 7,500 vehicles per hour currently travel through the roundabout at peak times. It is already operating at capacity, motorists regularly experience congestion and delays.

Our research shows that traffic in the area is expected to increase by up to 30% by 2037, with more than 9,000 vehicles per hour travelling through the roundabout at peak times.

Without intervention, there will be further deterioration in traffic conditions:

  • Delays will be at least 5 times greater
  • Average speeds will be reduced by 25%

There are 3 possible options that they are considering:

Option 5B

Option 5C

Option 5F

The scheme could cost anywhere between £61.3m – £79.8m. Consultant dates are as follows:
