Essex County Council has published a study of potential improvements to be made to the A120 in Essex.

It's to help provide quicker and safer travel.

More than four out of five people said they believe upgrades are needed and now four options for a dual carriageway A120 between Braintree and the A12 have been assessed.

A route option will be agreed at a meeting next week.

“We now have an opportunity to make history and build a road that will benefit people’s lives for decades to come. An improved A120 would form a modern gateway to the UK for drivers, businesses and freight travelling not only within our county but across the country."

– Cllr Kevin Bentley, Deputy Leader of Essex County Council
