2017/18 Maintenance and Improvement Programme East
Highways England operates, maintains and modernises the strategic road network in the East of England. We are committed to making journeys more reliable and ensuring that the region’s roads are fit for now and for the future.
I am writing to let you know about the following upcoming works on the A47 between Hardwick roundabout and A47 / A1122 Dereham Road roundabout:
• Road resurfacing
• Installation of new signs
• Verge clearance to improve drainage
• Renewal of road markings and lining
Once completed, the works will provide a better quality of road surface, improved road signs, markings and drainage for road users.
In order to carry out our work as quickly and safely as possible we will need to put in place some temporary traffic restrictions and diversions:
• Full closure of the A47 between Hardwick roundabout and A47 / A1122 Dereham Road roundabout from Monday 4 December to Wednesday 20 December between 8:00pm and 6:00am on weeknights
We will endeavour to complete the works during the dates above, however, these are down to factors such as weather, so delays may occur.
For any residents living within the road closure and wishing to gain access to their homes during our working times, an escort will be provided to ensure safe access to your property but delays may be experienced until we can arrange a safe route through the works area.
If you wish to discuss this project further, or have any questions about this work, then please contact our 24hr Highways England Customer Care team by phone on 0300 123 5000.
Alternatively, you can email GRAHAM Construction who will be carrying out the works.
We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience these works may cause you.
