The Traffic Management Act 2004 introduced a new network management duty for local traffic authorities. As a result it is now a requirement for the Council to manage the highway network to secure the expeditious movement of traffic. Thurrock Council, with strategy consultants, Small Fish, has developed this Traffic Management Plan in order to both help it manage congestion and to show how it is complying with the general purpose and specific requirements of the Traffic Management Act 2004. It therefore set outs the traffic management issues the Borough faces and what the Council plans to do to address those issues.
In Thurrock, Air Quality issues have been highlighted in relation to two regulated air pollutants – Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) and Particulate Matter (PM10).
Enabling cycling will go some way towards alleviating localised congestion, improving accessibility and making Thurrock a safer and more attractive place in which to cycle.
