Pedestrianisation of Braintree town centre


We are working closely with residents and businesses during the project. We have looked at innovative solutions for deliveries for both residential and business premises in the High Street.

There will be no vehicle access through Market Place, Great Square and the High Street from Thursday 10th September for all vehicles except for deliveries, loading and unloading between 6am and 10am.

This is to make sure construction work can take place safely. We will maintain access for bin collections and emergency vehicle access at all times.

This may be subject to change during the construction period. There may also be slight delays if there are particular site works underway.

To find out about how any specific details of the scheme will affect your business or home you can

Delivery hubs are available for business deliveries at the two service yards for George Yard for the properties with rear access, and the service yard behind The Bull in Market Place which has a new realigned service road.

Loading and unloading bays are available across the town centre for deliveries at the following locations:

  • Drury Lane
  • Fairfield Road
  • Fountain end of the High Street (opposite The Ruby)
