With more than 600 miles of motorways and major A roads in the Eastern region, our roads provide main routes taking people and freight from the ports of the East Coast through the region to the M25, M1 and A1.

The strategic road network keeps the region connected to the rest of the country.

We’re delivering an unprecedented level of investment in our roads to increase capacity and reduce congestion to reduce journey times and to make journeys more reliable and safer.

Projects include the widening of the A12 in Essex, a series of dualling and junction improvements along the A47, a major junction improvement and new road layout between the A428 / A1 Black Cat roundabout and Caxton Gibbet.

Driving isn't a game

If you tailgate the car in front of you, you'll have less time to react.
