Just past the diverge with the A130/A138 junction, with roundabout sign on the off-slip (although it looks as if it pertains to the mainline!)

A12 Chelmsford Bypass

Approach signage for the A130 junction. The A130 used to head through central Chelmsford, but multiplexes with the A12 for a couple of miles. The route into Chelmsford is now A1114 and A1060. The route south now follows the D2M Rettendon Bypass, with hard-shoulders.

A12 Chelmsford Bypass

Penultimate junction on the bypass is for the eastern end of the A414 towards Maldon, non-primary here and I think pointlessly renumbered from the old A122 (which has disappeared since the 1980s!). The section into Chelmsford is now A1060, so the A12 actually multiplexes with the A414 three-quarters the way round the bypass!

A130 junction redesign - Coppermine - 6450.jpg
A12/A130 junction redesign

This is how to make the A12/A130/A1114 junction to the south of Chelmsford into a freeflow. Firstly there's no need for access between the A1114 and A12 North since there's junctions just off the northern edge of the map that caters for these movements. The old A130 at the western end of Howe Green is stopped up and access to the A roads would be via a GSJ on the A130 about a mile to the south, this is due to a fifth entry to the junction causing further complications.
