Widening of the current single carriageway to dual two-lane all purpose standard just to the south of the existing road. This would have the effect of linking the Blofield and Acle dual carriageway bypasses to form a continuous route.
This scheme was withdrawn in July 2009 in a review of spending priorities. It was then re-instated in the 2014 Autumn Statement as a scheme which would be progressed before the end of the next Parliament in 2020.
A preferred route announcement (PDF) was made in August 2017.
Cones have appeared alongside the existing carriageway as preliminary ground works, according to local press, prior to a further public consultation.
The public consultation opened on 10 September and runs until 17 October.
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.
