A47 Great Yarmouth Junctions 13 December 2017

Work to improve two roundabout junctions on the A47 around the outskirts of Great Yarmouth.

Vauxhall Roundabout, where the A47 Acle New Road approaches Great Yarmouth from Norwich, will be reconstructed to provide a larger roundabout island and a wider circulating carriageway. The railway bridge carrying the A47 immediately south of the roundabout will be widened to allow two lanes in each direction on the immediate approach to the junction from the south. The roundabout will also be at least partly signalised and new pedestrian and bicycle crossings will be installed.

A47/A11 Thickthorn Junction Improvement 13 December 2017

Improvement works to Thickthorn Interchange, the junction where the A11 and A47 cross on the outskirts of Norwich. The A11 is the trunk road linking Norwich with London, and the continuous dual carriageway from London effectively terminates at this junction on the A47 Norwich bypass.

A47 North Tuddenham-Easton 21 August 2017

Improvement of the existing single carriageway A47 between North Tuddenham and Easton in Norfolk to provide a dual two-lane road, built a short distance off-line from the existing route. This will complete the dual carriageway between Norwich and Dereham. About 7.5 km (5 miles) of new dual carriageway will be built.

Two new grade-separated junctions will be provided, one at the eastern end of the scheme (replacing the roundabout that terminates the existing A47 Norwich Southern Bypass) and one between Hockering and Honingham.

A47 Wansford-Sutton 21 August 2017

Reconstruction of the A47 between the A1 and Wansford and the western end of the Castor Bypass to provide a dual two-lane road and improved junctions.

At present this section of the A47 connects Peterborough with points to the north and west, and is the last remaining section of single carriageway road between the town and the A1 to the north. Improvements will be made at the A1, including a new free-flowing sliproad from the southbound A1 towards Peterborough, though major changes to the layout of the existing interchange appear to be unlikely.

A47 Thorney Bypass 26 October 2008

Construction of a new dual-two lane bypass for Thorney near Peterborough, to divert the A47 to the north of the town. The route will have flat junctions, with three roundabouts along its length. Thorney is notorious as a bypass has been planned for several decades.
