Resurfacing, bridge repair work and vegetation clearance will see roads closed across the region over the coming week.

Highways England has released a summary of work which will take place from today until Sunday April 22.

Work will continue at Thickthorn roundabout as Highways England carries out extensive surveys of the road network. Work on the road will generally occur overnight, with working hours from 8pm to 6am and clearly signed diversions will be in place for motorists when road closures are necessary.

A closure of the A47 underneath the interchange will be in place until April 30 between 8pm and 6am on each day.

There will be lane closures using temporary traffic lights between 8pm and 6am on weekdays as well as some full road closures on the A47 between Swaffham and Dereham as vegetation clearance continues. A clearly signed diversion will be in place.

And work continues until Friday on the A47 Pullover and Hardwick roundabouts to renew road surfacing, pavements, signage, markings, remove vegetation and install high friction surfacing.
