Up to £700,000 is set to be spent on improving a pair of dangerous road junctions.
Cabinet members agreed to spend £400,000 making the junction of the A12 and Whalebone Lane North, in Chadwell Heath, safer.
Used by about 28,500 vehicles a day, Whalebone Lane North saw 47 collisions in the 36 months to March 2014, and a motorcyclist was killed at the junction in June last year.
The vehicle stacking lane on the northbound approach to the A12 will be widened, while an extra zebra crossing south of Pemberton Road will also be installed.
The narrowing of the junction with Mill Lane has also been proposed to reduce vehicle speeds on all roads between Whalebone Lane North between Millbrook Gardens and Adelaide Gardens.

A further £300,000 has been set aside for the junction of Ballards Road and New Road in Dagenham.
The installation of “speed cushions” along Ballards Road plus a speed hump and the upgrading of crossing facilities at the junction with Oval Road have been suggested.
