New road studs will also be laid along the stretch of the A47 at Swaffham, between Castle Acre Road and Norwich Road, along with road lines being repainted.

Highways England, which looks after Britain's motorways and A-roads, said the work will start on Friday, January 19 and take around three weeks to finish.

'We will be resurfacing, relining and laying new road studs,' a Highways England spokesman said.

'The A47 will be closed between 8pm and 6am on weeknights.
