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. We have held public consultations on our proposals for all of these schemes. For further details, please visit the individual scheme pages:
