The Evesham bid

Evesham’s role as a market town, offering a range of services and facilities to a wide rural hinterland, combined with its tight, historic network of narrow roads and limited number of both river and railway crossings conspire to create a situation where demand to travel far exceeds network supply, gridlocking the town with severe socio-economic impacts. 

Aligned with the Evesham Transport Strategy, the Evesham bid seeks to address this problem with a range of measures across multiple modes of transport.

If successful, the bid will help with the delivery of:

  • a walking and cycling network
  • public realm enhancement in the town centre (on Port Street)
  • a network of Real Time Information (RTI) traffic monitoring including Intelligent Traffic Light Priority (TLP)*
  • traffic-capacity improvements to the Badsey Road junction (A46/B4035) on the A46
  • an improved Badsey Lane Non-Motorised User (NMU) crossing of the A46

* This new technology allows every single unique ‘traffic’ movement to be captured (it can distinguish between cars, buses, trucks and vans, and it can pick-out people walking and people cycling), and it can capture this information along whole corridors.
