Better port links coming soon, says Highways Agency
According to an article on the Freight Business Journal website, improved access to the Port of Liverpool and a new road and tunnel under the Thames between Essex and Kent to speed up journeys to and from the Channel ports are included in a £14 billion programme of major road improvements announced recently by Highways England.
It also includes the scheme to upgrade the A66 to improve connections between ports in Scotland and Northern Ireland and those in England at Hull and Felixstowe.
