Got a problem with Crossrail? Now’s your chance to tell bosses
�Brentwood Council’s leader will be taking your views of Crossrail to bosses in July.
Cllr Louise McKinlay has set up the meeting to find out the timeframe for work and the impact it will have on Shenfield.
She is asking for residents and retailers in the area to tell her about any issues they have with the plans.
Crossrail will link Maidenhead and Heathrow in the west to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east. Services are due to start in 2018.
There has already been a series of meetings last summer and two public meetings in Shenfield about the project.

“I have set up the meeting to catch up and establish timeframes of when they are starting and finishing, discussions around parking, when the works are taking place, what we can do to mitigate the impact on retailers.
“They have suggested they will move some of the materials by rail so this will have less of an impact on the roads.”
Cllr McKinlay also wants confirmation of Crossrail’s plans for Hunter Avenue car park as it will have a big impact on traders.
She said: “I want to know how much of the car park they will use and what impact it will have with the lorries coming through.”
She added: “I will ensure when there is information to share with residents and retailers, we will tell them.”
