Road Works

Just Dual it!

Norfolk County Council is campaigning for the dualling of most of the Norfolk end of the A47 and recently announced that the road would be dualled between Tuddenham and Norwich. When I contacted them to ask whether West Norfolk was being considered, the Communications team replied that they needed the public to add pressure to help them get more funding for this part of the county.

They sent me some postcards for people to fill in and return to them. No doubt many people will want to express the urgent need for a bypass. The postcards are available at East Winch Post Office and at reception in the Borough Council office, and if anyone in Middleton would like some to hand around I will happily deliver some to them.
