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.
This scheme is part of the A47 Corridor Improvement programme of works.
According to local press reports, Norfolk County Council is considering a new link between the A47 at Tuddenham/Easton and the A1067, to bridge the gap west of Norwich created by the new A1270 Northern Distributor Road.
Lack of progress on this and other A47 improvements have prompted a report by officers at Norfolk County Council calling on traffic regulator the Office of Rail and Road (ORR) to hold Highways England - the agency tasked with doing the work - to account. There is a report in the local press.
