Witham MP Priti Patel has written to the Secretary of State for Transport to call for action to be taken to repair the County’s roads. Following the recent bout of severe weather key strategic roads in Essex, including the A12 and A120, have been damaged as well as local roads. Priti said:

“Our road network has taken a battering in recent days. The damage caused poses a risk to safety and could also damage vehicles with debris and potholes. I am pressing the Department for Transport and Highways England to check our strategic roads and take action to repair damage as soon as possible.”

Priti has been campaigning to secure new investment in these roads and has welcomed the consultations taking place.
