A SAFETY audit will be carried out at a danger junction within weeks after top level talks demanded action.
The Highways Agency has finally agreed urgent action needs to be taken on the Hare Green junction of the A120 and will draft a report assessing its safety by March 8.
Tendring Council called an emergency meeting on Wednesday, February 20, to air fears that changes to the layout made a year ago have only made matters worse.
The council was joined by Essex fire, police and ambulance services and Essex County Council to make the case.
The Standard demanded the Highways Agency took more action after a number of horror smashes on the stretch of road near Great Bromley. It had previously planned to carry out a review in April, 12 months after the junction was changed.
Once a report is written the group will decide what action needs to be taken at a second meeting at Clacton Town Hall on March 8.
