Better Southend - Victoria Gateway Square
Victoria Gateway Square Overview
The 'front door' of Southend needs a major overhaul to improve traffic flow and improve the town's appearance to visitors. The roundabout in front of the station is nearly 50 years old and can't take any more traffic at peak times. The new layout aims to address these problems and also improve the experience for pedestrians, cyclists and public transport users, without having a significant impact on traffic. A new public space linking the station with the town centre will also be created, replacing the existing roundabout with a signal controlled junction.

Victoria Gateway is part of 'Better Southend', a major project taking place across the town.
