Like anybody going to take that diversion. Straight through Old Harlow and Sawbridgeworth. God help us this end of town when 7a gets going. Thanks Halfon.

Pete will never use 7A he will drive through Harlow to get to junction 7 .

Not against 7a in principle just in wrong place. Should have been north of Sawbo and link with 120 at Thorley and stortford bypas. Yet again Essex bows down to Herts, as with river stort crossing.
