The A12 and the A14 in the East of England are set to receive upgrades thanks to a £200million investment from National Highways.
The East Anglian Daily Times reports that over the next 12 months, parts of the A14 and the A12 will be resurfaced in an attempt to “create a smoother road surface, reduce noise for motorists and nearby residents and improve safety”.
The roads were originally laid over 40 years ago and decades of use and hundreds of millions of journeys have left the roads in need of vital upgrades.
The newspaper says the A14 will be improved between junction 47 at Haughley and junction 49 at Tothill, while the A12 will also see works done in locations including junction 25 at Marks Tey near Colchester (pictured).
Martin Fellows, National Highways regional director, told the EADT, “Hundreds of thousands of customers rely on National Highways motorways and major A-roads every day for work journeys, home deliveries, and the movement of goods and services, so it’s essential that we keep them in a good condition to ensure reliability and safety.”
