More than £9 million has been secured by Essex County Council to tackle congestion and improve key routes in Essex.
The key infrastructure funding was announced by Transport Secretary Chris Grayling yesterday and offers a huge boost for those who use the M11 and A120, as well as other surrounding roads.
£4.09 million has been promised by the Department for Transport towards a £10 million scheme to upgrade Junction 8 on the M11.
This key junction can often become a pinch point for commuters and holidaymakers using the M11, A120 and nearby London Stansted Airport.
£4.95 million has also been pledged towards new slip roads linking the A120 to Millennium Way giving much-needed relief to the notorious pinch-point at Galleys Corner. The scheme will also provide better access to Freeport Shopping Village.
