The East region has the highest concentration of concrete roads on our road network, including the A12, A14, A120 and M11.
Around half of the old-style concrete roads will either have repairs or will be replaced during the next five years.
National Highways will use new methods and new technology to provide a modern road that will last for decades to come. This will also make it easier and quicker for future repairs to be undertaken.
Essex Chambers of Commerce are pleased to be supporting National Highways, on their works to reconstruct the A12 Margaretting Bypass scheme.
As part of this work the A12 Margaretting Bypass (between junctions 13 and 15) is being rebuilt. This will provide a smoother surface, improve safety and provide a quieter and better journey for road users.
During the works, the carriageway will be reduced to two lanes in both directions and the speed limit will be reduced to 40mph. A number of slip roads will need to be closed so the work can be completed safely and efficiently.
This work is likely to cause delays on the A12 during peak morning and evening times. For more information about the scheme, visit the website.
You can also sign up for email updates to notify you when new information is posted.
Throughout the scheme, National Highways will continue their ongoing engagement with their customers, providing them with regular information and updates. This includes using multiple channels, such as their scheme specific webpage, public information events, letters to residents, e-newsletters and through social media.
