New Name For Colchester Road

People in Colchester are getting the chance to name a road in the town.

The Northern Aprroach Road extension will run from Colchester North railway station to the new Junction 28, at the Western Homes Community Stadium.

Work on the extension is due to begin in early 2012 with an estimated completion date of August 2012.

The consultation runs until January and there are three name choices available:

  • Queen Boudica Approach
  • Chariot Approach
  • Or continue as Northern Approach Road

Residents can vote online for their choice by visiting or by sending in a vote by post to:
