Recently a 50mph speed limit enforced by SPECS was introduced at the eastern end of the A127 in Essex. It is likely that there will be increasing pressure to extend this speed restriction along the whole length of the A127 that is managed by Essex County Council.
Therefore the Safety Engineering Team at the Council, decided to employ TMS to carry out an independent collision study of the section of the A127 that is currently subject to the national speed limit (70mph). The work on the study will begin in March 2010.
The Safety Engineering Team plans to use the results of the TMS study to recommend the most appropriate course of action for this section of the A127.
