A120

The A120 is a major road stretching from London to Clacton-on-Sea, Essex in England. It is the longest A-road in the East of England region and is the main route connecting East Anglia to London and the M11 motorway.

The A120 was first built in 1925, with much of the existing route replacing the old Roman road, known as Stane Street. Since then, the A120 has become increasingly popular, with typically heavy traffic during commuter times in the morning and evening, and between London and Essex on Fridays and Sundays. The busiest stretch of the A120 is between Braintree and Harwich, where the A12 terminates and the A120 continues.

In terms of safety, the A120 has been credited with reducing traffic collisions, serious injuries, and fatalities. It has a good safety record, and casualty rates are relatively low across the entire route.
