Essex A12 widened at congestion black spot near Colchester

An extra lane is to be added to the A12 in Essex at a congestion black spot under new spending proposals announced by the government.

The stretch near Colchester close to the A120 junction will be widened. The junction with the M25 will also be rebuilt and new technology introduced to help ease congestion.

Chancellor George Osborne said the spending would be announced officially in the Autumn Statement.
