Braintree: £300,000 improvement for Galleys Corner
10:03am Monday 8th October 2012 in News
The Highways Agency today announced it would spend £300,000 improving Galleys Corner in Braintree.
It was one of six projects chosen in the region in a bid to reduce bottlenecks.
Work will begin next year by widening the roundabout so A120 traffic can use both lanes.
Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin said: “These £217 million road improvements prove the Government’s determination to accelerate growth and cut congestion.
“Keeping traffic moving is vital to securing prosperity. By removing bottlenecks and improving access to local enterprise zones, key international trading ports and communities, these road schemes will help get people to and from work and power the economy. They also have the potential to help deliver more than 300,000 new jobs and 150,000 new homes."
In the East of England, the schemes comprise: • A14 junction 31 to 32 improvement, Cambridgeshire • A1(M) junction 6 northbound all lane running, Welwyn • A1 Black Cat part-time signals, Chawston • A47 Honingham roundabout expressway • A1/A47 Wansford junction, Peterborough • A120 Galleys Corner roundabout improvement, Essex
