Michael Freeman, Highways England service delivery manager, said: “This mobile exhibition offers us an excellent opportunity to better get into communities we will be working alongside as we complete crucial road upgrades in the east of England.
“It's important we speak with people to explain the work we are doing and the benefits it will bring for them, their town and this region.
“We're aware that the work we do has an impact on our road users, and so Highways England is eager to better engage with drivers and local residents, so we can hear their comments, allay their concerns and answer any questions they may come to us with.
“Last year we had a good response with people coming along to learn about roadworks and share their views, so we hope that interest will continue and grow further in 2019.”
The works will include essential road maintenance, safety improvements, traffic signal renewals, road resurfacing, landscaping and the creation of cycleways.
