A12 in Essex needs improvements, says AA and lorry group.

The Essex-stretch of the A12 is no longer ‘fit for purpose’, hauliers and a motoring organisation claim.

Paul Watters, from the AA, said: “It is a compromise road and it has not got modern design standards. It is a regionally important road.”

The Highways Agency said: “According to the current design standards, no hard shoulder has to be provided on a dual carriageway, and the provision of any such hard shoulder would depart from the standards.”
