Preferred Route Announcement

Consultation brochure

Response form

A12 Chelmsford to the A120 Widening Scheme

On behalf of Highways England, I am pleased to share with you our preferred route for junctions 19 to 23 .

We are also holding a non-statutory consultation on junctions 23 to 25.  To progress the A12 project whilst the garden community proposal is being examined, we are making a preferred route announcement on the road between junctions 19 to 23, based on options 2 and 3 from our 2017 consultation.

It’s important that our plans for the A12 meet the future needs of the area. We are therefore also holding a further non-statutory public consultation on four new possible routes between junctions 23 and 25, in case the garden community does go ahead. If the garden community does not go ahead, the route between junctions 23 and 25 will be based on our 2017 consultation.

The consultation on junctions 23 to 25 runs from Monday 21 October 2019 until 11.59pm on Sunday 1 December. These announcements are supported by eight public drop-in exhibition events.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
