The next stage of development is now underway with an exhibition of the next round of proposals. Some of these proposals are out for consultation, in particular on the subject of noise reduction.

There are two main changes:

1. A new wooden fence. A map of their location is available at http://www.essexhighways.org/uploads/files/M11-J7a/M11-J7A-Proposed-Noise-Barriers.pdf

2. Removal of the underpass near the junction with Mulberry Green. More information on what this would look like at http://www.essexhighways.org/highway-schemes-and-developments/major-schemes/m11-junction-7a/m11-junction-7a-underpass.aspx

To further reduce noise disturbance, a 40mph speed limit will also be introduced.

I understand that now there will be a short wait for the land to be acquired. I will continue to keep you updated with developments after that.
