What
Supported by Hertfordshire LEP, a new 3.9km bypass to the north of Little Hadham will alleviate congestion along the A120 and provide more reliable journey times. With support from the Environment Agency, new road embankments will be built along the River Ash and Albury Tributary as part of the scheme, which will act as flood defences to reduce risk to the village and other nearby communities.

Construction of the A120 Little Hadham bypass began in July 2019 and is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.

Why
The new bypass will reduce improve air quality in Little Hadham, and alleviate traffic congestion and improve journey times along the A120, a vital link between the A10 and Stansted Airport.

Funding
Hertfordshire LEP invested £8.26m from the Local Growth Fund, and helped secure a further £27.4m from the Department of Transport as part of a wider funding package with Hertfordshire County Council and the Environment Agency.
