Essex County Council TraffWeb: Collision Information

TraffWeb displays information on road traffic collisions, safety cameras, and the functional route hierarchy for Essex.
Essex County Council is not responsible for dealing with collisions which occur on the Trunk Road network. In Essex, the A12, A120, M11, and M25 are managed by agents on behalf of The Highways Agency:

Highways England operates, maintains and improves England’s motorways and major A roads. In Essex these include the A12 (north of the M25), A120, M11, M25, A13 (M25 to A1089), A1089 and A282. For information about these routes please visit the Highways England website at or contact them by email at or telephone 0300 123 5000.

Road Traffic Collisions

The information displayed here is based on the statistics gathered by the Police about road traffic collisions which result in injuries. This page contains no information on incidents which result in vehicle damage but no injuries. All personal details of people involved in collisions have been removed from the records displayed here.

Safety Cameras

You can view the locations of fixed Red Light Cameras and Fixed Safety Cameras - popularly known as 'Speed Cameras'. For more information on Safety Cameras please visit our Driving Casualties Down website.

Functional Route Hierarchy

In 2005, Essex County Council published its Traffic Management Strategy which included the Functional Route Hierarchy for Essex. This is a way of dividing up the roads by the type and volume of traffic using the road. This information is then used as the basis for other policies (such as the Speed Management Strategy) and to help Essex County Council manage the road network. The network is divided into County Routes (A and B Roads and some major unclassified roads) and Local Roads.
