Changes to 47 Bus Route Chelmsford (Beaulieu Park, Broomfield Chelmer Village)
A review of the number 47 bus service with a view to improve its service to the community. The aim is to get the 47 bus to run more frequently throughout the early part of the day and to start at the same place each day. This will benefit many people, including:
Staff working at Broomfield hospital to use it to get back to Beaulieu Park and Chelmer Village (and Chelmsford City Centre),
Children heading to Beaulieu Park School from Broomfield and local area,
Children from Chelmer Village to use the service to get Beaulieu Park School
Help people to go from bus station towards Beaulieu Park
By improving the 47 bus service, it will service the community now and in future. This doesn’t just impact on people wanting to use the service this year, but people who are considering using the bus next year, for example, if you are considering Beaulieu Park School in the future for your child.
This should relieve traffic on the local busy routes. If a bus service is not available, car usage will increase by workers from the hospital and children travelling towards Beaulieu Park and the new school, making our busy roads even more congested.
