Western Esplanade

Cycle the Seafront!

Last summer saw the cycle path on the seafront extended to include the Western Esplanade. Work has now finished on the shared space area between Pier Hill and the Sealife centre and cyclists will be able to ride continuously from Shoebury through to Chalkwell enjoying our magnificent seafront along the way.

"The segregated cycle route along the sea front was among the best I have seen anywhere in the UK, and in terms of place-making generally, thanks to the new walking, cycling, traffic and parking arrangements, the improvement to the overall space that has taken place since my last visit to Southend was nothing short of remarkable." states Martyn Brunt, Sustrans NCN Development Manager
