A map detailing nine possible options for a new stretch of the A120 has been released ahead of a public consultation in the New Year.

The options, which run from Braintree to the A12 near Colchester, are being unveiled to make sure residents are aware of the important study to improve the vital road link and the public consultation on route options next year.

“A modern A120 will not only help journey times, it will also help grow local businesses not just in Essex but across East Anglia. “We are reliant on the public to get behind our vision and join in the consultation to share their views for the future of Essex and the wider road network.”

– Cllr Kevin Bentley, Essex County Council Deputy Leader
