The A47 will be closed at various times and locations in the evenings 14-18 Nov. Roughly between Blofield and Great Yarmouth. The diversion is huge, and traffic will be diverted along the A146. See the full post below for a diagram and full explanation.

Verbatim from the official notice:

We plan to carry out surveys to assess the condition of the A47 at various locations between Lingwood Lane and Great Yarmouth. 

We plan to complete this work over 5 nights between Monday 14 November and Friday 18 November. We will work between 8pm and 6am, weather permitting.

Closures and diversions

To carry out the work safely, we will need to close the A47 and divert traffic as detailed below:

  • A47 Acle Roundabout to Vauxhall Roundabout both directions – Monday 14 November
  • Lingwood Lane to Acle Roundabout eastbound – Tuesday 15 November and Wednesday 16 November (No access will be available from Brundall / Cucumber Lane Roundabout)
  • Acle Roundabout to Lingwood Lane westbound – Thursday 17 November and Friday 18 November. (No access will be available from Acle Roundabout)

Whilst the A47 is closed, eastbound traffic will be diverted off the A47 at Norwich onto the A146 and A143 to re-join the A47 at Great Yarmouth. Westbound traffic will follow the same diversion but in reverse.
