End of Consultation

March 14, 2017

The A120 Braintree to the A12 Feasibility Study consultation period has now closed.

All responses will be analysed and compiled into a consultation report for consideration by Essex County Council.

Essex County Council will consider all responses and use this information to make a recommendation to the Secretary of State and Highways England for consideration for inclusion in the Roads Investment Strategy 2.

In March 2020, the government announced details of its latest Road Investment Strategy (RIS2), covering April 2020 to March 2025.

The strategy outlines how the government will be investing £27.4 billion in maintaining, improving and building capacity in the strategic road network during the 2020-25 period, including £2.2 billion for the east of England.

The document also looks further ahead and includes a list of ‘pipeline projects’ which will undergo more analysis and design work ahead of being considered for potential future investment.

The A120 Braintree to A12 was identified as a pipeline project and will now be progressed by Highways England.
