Tarmac has been awarded a £3 million contract to carry out improvements on the A12 and A14 in Essex and Suffolk.
The firm will work on behalf of Highways England to carry out a package of works through Marylands interchange, Copdock Mill and Seven Hills interchange.
The work will involve resurfacing, replacing and installing new signs, replacing road markings, barrier renewal, drainage and embankment work.
Aran Nugent, service delivery team leader at Highways England, said: “The appointment of the contractor is a vital part of the delivery of improvements to some of our major roads in Essex. This scheme will make journeys better for local people by improving safety for the thousands of drivers that use these roads each day.”
Work is expected to start in the winter and will be completed by spring next year.
