The A120 was mentioned in a Westminster debate on 'Airport Expansion: East Anglia' on 12 January 2016. Sir Alan Haselhurst brought up the A120 during the debate and this was the response of Transport Minister Robert Goodwill MP:


“My right hon. Friend the Member for Saffron Walden raised the issue of the A120 from Braintree to Marks Tey. In the July Budget, the Chancellor announced that the Government would co-fund a study with Essex County Council into dualling the last single-carriageway section between Stansted and the A12. That puts the scheme in a strong place for the next roads investment strategy. If funding is secured for the scheme, it could be one of the first schemes at the start of construction in roads investment strategy period 2, which I think is the equivalent of a control period in the rail industry. “
