CALLS to dual the A120 between Braintree and Marks Tey have been put before senior politicians.

Witham MP Priti Patel raised the issue during a meeting with Roads Minister Robert Goodwill.

Ms Patel said: "The A120 is one of the most important economic links in the country and yet the section between Marks Tey and Braintree has become one of the most congested and dangerous roads in England.

"The minster is fully aware of the problems with this road and open to listening to proposals to upgrade it.”
