The consultation period is now closed

Essex County Council (ECC) held a very successful non-statutory public consultation on the five route options and would like to thank the many people who participated and shared a wide range of views. These will inform decisions on the next phase of the scheme. We held a public consultation on the five identified options between 17th January and 14th March 2017 and sought views from:

  • members of the public
  • local authorities
  • emergency services
  • freight and passenger transport bodies
  • statutory environmental bodies
  • equalities and vulnerable user groups
  • organisations
  • businesses.

We sought views from respondents on the need for improvements to the A120 and on the five route options identified. This included asking consultees to rank their preferred options as well as provide feedback on potential junction locations.

82% of respondents to the public consultation felt that the A120 required a complete upgrade to meet current and future demand, demonstrating clear support for the scheme.
