  • I do wish they would invest in some information signs. I joined the jam at colchester severalls, but would have avoided the a12 if known before joining. As it was, dozens of cars were shortcutting on to the narrow roads around Ardleigh. If they can waste millions on signs on the a14 telling us how to drive properly, you'd think they would put some on the a12 too.

  • Your report is entirely inaccurate. My husband was involved in the incident. A motorbike and two cars behind him all crashed into one another in the outside lane. In the inside lane a lorry shunted a fiesta into a camper can parked in the lay by. Including the him that makes 7 vehicles!
