Press release

A120 safety scheme begins

Road users are advised that work to improve safety for road users on the A120 in the Little Bentley area of Essex will start on Monday for 10 days.


There will be lane closures to keep road users at a safe distance from the works and to protect our workforce. These closures will be between 8.30am and 4.30pm on the eastbound carriageway at the A133 Hare Green Interchange.

The traffic will be managed by traffic lights between Horsley Cross roundabout and Pellens Corner junction between 9.30am and 3.30pm while the works are completed.

New signs will be erected and we will also install foundation posts for average speed cameras which will be installed at a later date. More details about this work will be announced once this part of the scheme is complete.

Motorists affected by this work are advised to plan ahead and allow extra time for travel.
