A47 Overnight Closures – Postwick Interchange to Acle

Dear Local Stakeholder,

A47 Postwick interchange to Acle roundabout: survey works

I write to inform you that Kier will be undertaking survey works at the above location on behalf of Highways England. These surveys will allow us to investigate potential issues, and programme any future works necessary to maintain the existing infrastructure.

We plan to complete this work over five nights, from Monday 5 February, with working hours of 8pm until 6am, weather permitting.

Work will start with a full closure of the westbound carriageway, from Monday 5 February, lasting three nights. Work will then switch to the other side of the road, from Thursday 8 February, with a full closure of the eastbound carriageway, lasting two nights

Diversion route


Leave the A47 at Postwick interchange; take the A1042, B1140 towards South Walsham, Panxworth Road, continue through Acle Road, South Walsham Road and Bridewell Lane, take Old Road, then the A1064 towards the A47.


Leave the A47 at Acle roundabout; take the A1604, Old Road, Bridewell Lane, continue through South Walsham Road, Acle Road and Panxworth Road, take the B1140 towards Norwich, before taking the A1604 and re-joining the A47 at Postwick interchange.

Local Traffic

Local traffic joining the A47 between Postwick interchange and Acle roundabout will be directed towards Burlingham Green. Traffic will then take South Walsham Road to join the agreed diversion route. Motorists can then use the B1140 to drive towards Norwich or Acle and re-join the A47.
