MP repeats calls for investment in A120

On the appointment of a new Roads Minister, local MP James Cleverly has written once again to highlight his concerns and push the importance of major government investment in the A120.

James stressed that the dual carriageway proposal will make the road network safer, support the smooth flow of traffic and encourage economic growth adding value to the local economy through new jobs, business and housing.

It would also alleviate a significant existing bottleneck reduce the number of vehicles cutting through Braintree, causing gridlock at pinch points through our old market town. Its delivery at the earliest possible opportunity is vital so that residents, road users, businesses and the wider economy can reap the benefits.
