Essex road users can now enjoy a convenient link between the A12 and A130.

The new relief road, A131 Beaulieu Parkway, eases congestion in and around Springfield.

It will replace White Hart Lane and Colchester Road as the strategic route to Braintree, Stansted Airport and the M11.

The new Boreham Bridge will also allow access to Beaulieu Park train station. This is due to open at the end of next year.

The relief road has been funded and delivered by Countryside and L&Q. It forms part of our commitment to keep Essex's travel network fit for the future.
