Billericay School, The
Getting to and from The Billericay School
These routes and maps are suggestions of how you could stop taking the car and swap to cycling, walking, or scooting to school. They don’t show every possible route and you could have fun finding a way that works for you. If you know a safe way that gets you there even quicker, that’s great! Take that route instead.
Heavy traffic zone
The highlighted heavy traffic zone on the map shows the area that will have the heaviest traffic at school time. By using alternate routes and a mix of walking and cycling, you can avoid sitting in traffic and being late for school.
Direct walking access to the Billericay School is at either end of a relatively quiet residential road, meaning the traffic speeds are low and safer for pedestrians. There’s a footpath along the front of the school. There’s an underpass beneath the busy A176 so students who live in South Green can easily reach the school on foot. There are zebra crossings and pelican crossings for walkers coming from the town centre.
There are a great number of options for students cycling to school. The A176 underpass means cyclists don’t have to worry about this busy road. Billericay School is extremely close to National Cycle Network route 13, which runs through the town, connecting Chelmsford and Basildon. The one-way road system in the town centre, less than 500 metres away, also helps with cycle safety.
No services run directly past the school as it’s on a cul-de-sac. However, the school is extremely close to the centre of town and bus services connecting Basildon, Chelmsford and Shenfield. These all circle the one-way system in the centre of Billericay, which is only about 500 metres away from the school gate. The stops have shelter and seating.
Billericay railway station is just under a mile walk from the school with the route heading down the high street which has pavements all the way. The nearest stations on that line are Shenfield and Wickford. Greater Anglia offer discounts on train travel for students at some schools.
