Gateway 120 – the proposed plan to build a dual carriageway from Colchester to Braintree

Thursday, 24 October 2013 00:00

Essex desperately needs a new A120, Gateway 120 will help deliver the new duelled A120 by contributing to the cost of construction. This innovative private-public initiative will be  made possible by creating two new communities, based around the concept of the market town or garden suburb.

  • The plans will contribute significantly towards local housing needs and will create thousands of new jobs, supporting long term commercial growth:
  • High quality homes and communities to attract skilled workers
  • Faster, safer journeys between Colchester and Braintree
  • A better connection between two of the UK’s global market-facing infrastructure assets – Harwich port and Stansted airport
  • An investment valued at £1.1bn for the local economy
  • The creation of 11,600 new jobs, including over 5,000 construction roles
  • Major additional contributions to services and infrastructure through Section 106 and Community Infrastructure Levies

These credible plans have been developed by local people supported by an experienced professional development team. The team is also engaged with Department for Transport, Department for Communities and Local Government, the Highways Agency, local authorities and local Members of Parliament.
