Roads Minister Jesse Norman confirmed the Department for Transport will provide £27.4 million, almost three quarters of the total funding, for a Little Hadham Bypass along the A120 between Bishop’s Stortford and the A10.

As well as improving traffic flows in the area, the improvements will reduce congestion and improve air quality in the centre of Little Hadham, improving the overall wellbeing of residents in the village.

The improvements to Hertfordshire’s road infrastructure will also bring specific benefits to Stansted Airport, improving the transport links to the airport, boosting the local economy.

Jesse Norman, Roads Minister, said:

“Investment in local roads cuts travel time, boosts business, and can improve air quality by cutting congestion.

“This new bypass will significantly benefit both road users and residents in and around Little Hadham as well as across Hertfordshire.”
