Last night, Basildon councillors agreed the plans for the major road between Fortune of War and the Pound Lane junction.
It comes after pressure from the Government to reduce air pollution.Hmmm, I wonder what it could be? A diversion away from populated zones? A low-emission only zone?
The debate was wrapped up quickly and voted in favour by 39 with just one abstention.Well, it must have been a very sensible one, if they all...
Oh, maybe not:
Basildon Council has agreed plans for a 50mph limit along a stretch of the A127 to cut air pollution.Yes, of course! Obviously, the answer is to increase the amount of time vehicles spend in the zone! It's genius!
