Investment in Strategic Roads

Since 2010 Priti has been a longstanding campaigner for investment in the road network. Local roads need investment and upgrading and Priti is in regular contact with Essex County Council to get roads and footpaths repaired and potholes fixed.

Priti has also successfully campaigned for new investment in the A12 and the A120. Both of these key strategic roads are economic corridors that are vital to our County’s economy and need improvements to reduce delays and ease congestion. But they also need upgrading to make them safer to reduce the number of accidents that take place.

Following campaigning by Priti the A12 is to be widened between the Boreham Interchange and Marks Tey into a three-lane carriageway. The precise details on the route and sections to be re-routed are still being determined. There are also plans for further widening of the road.

The A120 has been the subject of a comprehensive study funded by the Government and by Essex County Council to consider the how best to dual the single carriageway stretch of road between Braintree and Marks Tey. A decision on the preferred route will be taken in due course by Essex County Council and then a business case put to the Government for funding.
