Highways England will be carrying out essential drainage renewal works at the above location. During this work, damaged safety barriers, signs, road markings and studs will be replaced.
The work will be completed over 8 weeks working between the hours of 8pm to 6am, subject to weather conditions.
Due to the extensive amount of work on this project, the programme has three phases. Liaison with county, district and parish councillors have agreed the most suitable diversion routes for each phase as detailed below:
Phase 1: A47 eastbound between Trowse Newton and Cucumber Lane roundabout, starting Monday 8 June to Friday 24 July (7 weeks)
Eastbound traffic will be diverted off the A47 at Trowse Newton onto the A146. Then follow the A146 until Gillingham and the A143 to re-join the A47 at Beccles. We expect this diversion to add approximately 10 to 15 minutes to your journey. (Diagram 1)
Phase 2: A47 eastbound Trowse Newton exit slip road, starting Monday 27 July to Friday 31 July (4 nights)
Eastbound traffic wanting to leave the A47 at Trowse Newton will be diverted to Postwick roundabout and come back along the A47 westbound to Trowse Newton. We expect this diversion to add approximately 5 to 10 minutes to your journey. (Diagram 2)
Phase 3: A47 eastbound Trowse Newton entry slip road, starting Thursday 30 July to Friday 31 July (1 night)
Eastbound traffic wanting to join the A47 at Trowse Newton will be diverted along the A146 (Loddon road) to join the A47 westbound at the Harford roundabout back along the A47 eastbound. We expect this diversion to add approximately 5 to 10 minutes to your journey. (Diagram 3)
