Better Braintree - Together started this petition to National Highways

Countryside in north Essex is at risk from a huge building project:  six NEW lanes of A12 in addition to the current four.  That's TEN lanes of noisy, polluting traffic between Marks Tey and Kelvedon.  We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to re-wild the current A12 and create a country park when the new one is built! 

Let's make it into country park, with access for cycling, pedestrians and horse riders.  Let's plant trees, wild-flower meadows and hedgerows, and bring nature back.

Rewilding the A12 will bring some small compensation for loss of countryside and habitat when the new six lane road is built,  Tree & hedge-planting will help to absorb some of the air pollution from the new road.   The new 4km-long park will be easily accessed from nearby towns. 

It will be safe for children to play, cyclists to ride, dog walkers to take their dogs and horse riders to exercise.  And, importantly, wildlife will be able to flourish.

Road access will be restricted to residents and buses.   

Please sign the petition and share with your friends - and ask your MP to back this proposal.
