Road Works

August/September 2019

Roadworks on the A47 continue with overnight closures. Work is programmed to take approximately 10 nights. Work is to include carriageway repairs and the replacement of road markings, studs and high friction surfacing.
The works are subject to weather conditions; there may therefore be changes to the planned dates. Notices onsite will show the most up to date information.
Work, and road closures, will be carried out between 8pm and 6am on weekdays only.

The A47 will be closed between the Hardwick roundabout and the A1122 Downham Road roundabout.
Diversions will be signed.
Going eastwards towards Norwich - travel via the A10 - A134 - A1122 - rejoining the A47 at the A1122/A47 roundabout near Swaffham
Going westwards towards Wisbech leave the A47 at the junction with the A1122 - continue towards Downham Market and join the A10 towards King's Lynn.


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.
