District council leader Richard Siddall said: "I am delighted to see the Maldon District Future Transport Strategy consultation being launched. 

"It is a longer-term strategy that explores transport issues in the district and reviews what changes and investments could be made in the future to tackle problems such as air pollution, congestion, public transport routes and frequency, as well as getting more people up and about, walking and cycling where they are able to.
