Roads Investment Strategy 1 include locations for improvements from 2020. Highways England has received £300 million to improve or dual locations along the A47/A12.
We will report on individual projects when they are announced including updates and improvements to the Acle Straight, Vauxhall Roundabout and Gapton Hall Roundabout. All of which need drastic improvement, although schemes in this round of improvements are unlikely to include major reconfiguration of problem areas like Gapton Hall.
The preferred routes and improvements are due to be announced mid-2017 with works scheduled to start in 2020 for completion around 2022.
The full list of improvements are as follows:
|Junction||Explanation of Improvements|
|A47 Blofield to North Burlingham Dualling||To complete the gap in dual carriageway between Norwich and Acle|
|A47 North Tuddenham to Easton Dualling||To provide continuous dual carriageway between Norwich and Dereham|
|A47 Wansford to Sutton Dualling||To complete dualling between Peterborough and the A1|
|A47/A12 Great Yarmouth Junction Improvements||Schemes such as the reconstruction of the Vauxhall roundabout|
|A47 Acle Straight Safety Measures||Improved safety measures at key accident hotspots|
|A47/A11 Thickthorn Junction Improvement||Improving the junction interchange to improve the access into Norwich|
