Works on the A47 Easton Roundabout

In August the A47 Easton Roundabout will be resurfaced. Both lanes of the roundabout will be resurfaced, including 60m of the A47 westbound exit, and the road markings will be replaced.  The works will start on Monday 24 August 2015 and they are planned for completion by Tuesday 25 August 2015. Works will take place between the hours of 20:00 and 06:00 and this may result in some extra noise at night from diverted traffic through Drayton for which the contractors, working on behalf of Highways England, apologise.

To keep road users at a safe distance from the works the contractors will need to close the A47 in both directions between the A1065 Swaffham Interchange and the A1074 Longwater Interchange. They will put clearly signposted diversion routes in place.

If you have any enquiries please contact the Highways England Customer Contact Centre on 0300 123 5000, or by email to: [email protected]
