A47 closures

The A47 at Postwick will be closed again this coming weekend (Friday 8 May to Monday 11 May) for the final stage in lifting bridge beams into place.

Diversions will be as on previous weekend closures. Both carriageways of the A47 will close at 8pm tomorrow, Friday 8 May, opening no later than 6am on Monday 11 May. A series of overnight closures (details below) will follow, but these will be less disruptive. This weekend, the A47 will re-open sooner than 6am on Monday if possible, but the amount of work required is more than on the two weekend closures in April.

Postwick Park & Ride will again be closed. The nearest alternative is Harford Park & Ride. As on previous weekends, the diversions will be via the junction slip-roads and the new business park access roads. There may be delays on the diversion routes when beams are being moved into position for lifting into place.
