Highway’s England makes £114 million pledge to improve roads in East of England

Smoother journeys ahead as Highways England reveals multi-million-pound investment to improve the region’s roads, pavements and bridges over the next 12 months.


Well-known motorways and major A roads including the M11, A14, A1, A47 and A12 will all benefit from the planned package of enhancements, with road resurfacing, bridge joint replacements, the creation of cycle lanes, improved signage and landscaping all set to take place.

Green light for increase in speed through roadworks

Highways England is to increase the basic speed limit at which motorists can drive through roadworks.


After extensive and innovative research and trials, the company has confirmed that where it is safe for road users and roadworkers, and where shown on road signs, vehicles can be driven at up to 60mph.

That’s 10mph faster than the current 50mph norm.
