Answer to Colchester congestion crisis - stop cars!
A Cycling campaigner has put forward radical proposals to reduce congestion in Colchester - including closing a key junction to cars during peak times.
About 34,000 vehicles travel under North Station bridge each day creating a bottleneck of traffic at peak times.
And concerns have been raised the situation will get worse when 1,600 homes are built off Nayland Road in Mile End in forthcoming years.
Questions are being asked about how to deal with the extra influx of traffic.
And Will Bramhill, chairman of the Colchester Cycling Campaign, said the answer is to deter it.
