This is becoming a daily occurrence as the M11 often has major incidents during busy times. This will increase traffic thorough Epping as Drivers head straight through the market town to avoid the busy motorway.
With the traffic lights on palmers hill that are out of sync and already taking a huge a affect on the town this is just added misery for locals. See Link below for our other news story.
Traffic in Epping is again at a complete standstill in many of the main routes coming through the small market town.
At Lawlor Car Service we believe this has been caused by the traffic lights on Palmers Hill/The Plain (ST Margaret’s Hospital). The lights are out of sync once again and when this happens the whole area suffers travel chaos.
As a taxi company we are growing fast and the traffic causes us major headaches and members of the public are fuming that the whole town regularly comes to an unbearable state.
In the coming days we can expect more traffic problems as the lights will still not be performing the way they should. Essex County Council are responsible for the lights in our district and we will be getting in touch with them shortly. Essex County Council Traffic Lights Report Line

Epping took a huge hit when Storm Doris struck on 23rd February 2017. The image above shows a BMW that had a tree fall right on top of it. This was 1 of many trees that fell yesterday and caused traffic misery in the local area.
James mentioned in an Email that he thought ‘the local services were on the ball and prevented dilemma, traffic in Epping is stupid most of the time so I hold my hat up to them,’ and ‘one tree fell at around 3pm and by 4.30pm the tree had gone and road was opened.
Later in the day the Stansted Express was affected by the weather and all trains were cancelled. Epping again was hit hard by this situation as transport companies like our self (Lawlor Cars) were left to transport hundreds of commuters towards Harlow, Bishops Stortford, Stansted and as far as Audley End Station.
