A47 corridor improvement programme

In 2014 the UK Government established the Road Investment Strategy. As part of this the East of England was identified as an area in need of investment. 17 major road schemes were identified as requiring investment including 6 schemes along the A47.

It is recognised that the A47 has a number of congestion hotspots around Norwich, Peterborough and Great Yarmouth. These result in delays and concerns regarding safety for all road users. There are also developments resulting in significant growth predicted along the A47 through Norfolk and these are the areas which our proposed improvements will help to support for the local communities affected.

The schemes involved are shown below. Each scheme undertook a consultation in 2017, and you can find out more about the results of these consultations by visiting the individual scheme pages:

Public consultations

We're consulting on plans to improve journeys between Peterborough and Great Yarmouth. Improvements to this route will help to make travelling between these regions easier and safer, reduce congestion, make journey times more reliable and help to support wider economic growth.

Between September and November 2018 there will be consultations on improvements to the following roads:

  • A47 Blofield to North Burlingham - 10 September to 19 October
  • A47 Wansford to Sutton - 18 September to 29 October

If you use these roads then make sure you take the opportunity to have your say.
