Funding approved for two new road projects in Essex

Essex County Council has won final detailed approval for two major South Essex transport infrastructure projects which Essex County Council can now begin and complete within 28 months.

The £14.7M A127 Basildon Enterprise Corridor and the £12.1M Canvey Island Access Link Extension have been given the green light by the government and Essex County Council will soon commence initial works on the schemes with completion of both schemes by March 2011.

Councillor Norman Hume, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transportation, said: "This is terrific news and shows the huge progress in attracting investment and actually delivering the transport infrastructure improvements that the people of South Essex need and deserve.

"Our county is facing exciting challenges and opportunities with the 2012 Olympics, a new London Gateway super port and the expansion of the port at Harwich all just around the corner."
