WORK will begin next week on a scheme that is hoped will reduce queuing on the A12 near Boreham.

Essex Highways are to lengthen the slip road on the A12 northbound at junction 19 Boreham Interchange by 100 meters.

When finished, the slip road will reduce the possibility of queues on the road at peak hours and improve traffic flow.

Work will take place from 8pm-6pm when it begins on Tuesday, May 27. Drivers are being warned there may be localised delays on the A12 during these times.
