South East Growth and Transport Plan
Opening date: 31 October 2020
Closing date: 31 January 2021
Map of proposed changes
The South East Hertfordshire Growth & Transport Plan (SEGTP) is a new transport strategy to help direct and plan transport improvements and investment in Hertford, Ware, Hoddesdon, Broxbourne, Cheshunt and Waltham Cross, and to surrounding areas.
This area faces significant levels of proposed new housing and employment development, with added pressure of new homes and jobs are also proposed in surrounding areas including Cambridgeshire, Essex, Greater London and the rest of Hertfordshire.
Important transport links in this area include the M25, A10, A414, A119, B1197 and A1170 roads, the West Anglia Main Line railway line, the National Cycle Route 61 and a range of local and longer distance bus and coach services.
To help ensure the transport network continues to work safely and efficiently, the GTP identifies packages of interventions, that could address current and future traffic congestion issues such as noise and poor air quality. Interventions can be small or large, and could be introduced now or in the future, depending on how complex they are and if enough funding is available.
Strategic Environmental Assessment
The European Directive 2001/42/EC requires that a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) is carried out on Plans that are likely to have a significant effect upon the environment, a SEA has therefore been undertaken on the draft South East GTP, and the outcomes of the assessment can be found in the Draft Environmental Report.
