MP calls for action on the A120 after two accidents in one day
7:30am Tuesday 17th September 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
MP for Harwich and North Essex Bernard Jenkin has described the latest two accidents on the A120 as ‘dreadful’.
He has campaigned for improvements to the stretch of road.
“I have again said to the minister for roads that the accident rate on this section of road is completely unacceptable,” he said.
“The gap closure has opposition from the County Council and every parish council in the area.”
Mr Jenkin said the solution would be to have a lower speed limit enforced by cameras.
“We need to take it down to a 50 or 40 mile limit along the road,” he said.
