Project information


We are carrying out essential resurfacing between the Postwick junction and Ipswich Road junction on both the westbound and eastbound carriageways of the A47.

Alongside this, we’ll be doing additional maintenance and repairs to safety barriers, replacing road markings and reflective studs (cat’s eyes), new road signs and updating technology.

We will split the work into phases, which will take four months to complete.

Our work will increase the life expectancy of the road surface and make journeys safer for motorists.

By doing other road maintenance at the same time, we will reduce the number of times we need to have roadworks.
This will reduce the amount of disruption to local businesses and communities.
