Motorway traffic


Today the M11 was slow again during rush hour due to an RTA involving 3 cars.

News Report can be found here

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.

Traffic Misery for commuters AGAIN today

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


The M11 issues today are just adding to our problems as customers who travel further afield get caught up in the road/lane closures on one of the main Motorways nearby. See Links below.
