The Highways Agency made a Preferred Route Announcement in October 2019 confirming its plans for the first section of the scheme, from junction 19 (Boreham interchange) to junction 23 (Kelvedon south).
It is now holding a public consultation on four new route options between junctions 23 and 25. The ambition is to make improvements along the A12 stretching from junction 19 (Boreham interchange) to junction 25 (Marks Tey interchange).
This consultation from the Highways Agency runs from 21 October to 1 December 2019. There are public consultation events and information points in the borough – more info here.
