Highways England are are pleased to announce the A12 Chelmsford to A120 widening scheme public consultation.
In line with the Government’s Road Investment Strategy 2015, Highways England is developing proposals to widen the A12 between junction 19 (north of Chelmsford) and junction 25 (Marks Tey). It is part of a £15.2 billion investment in England’s motorways and major A roads. In the east, over £2 billion is being invested to create better and safer journeys across the region.
