It comes after eight weeks’ work began yesterday on the A47 between the Pullover and Hardwick roundabouts.

Norfolk police has tweeted this morning that traffic is building up in King’s Lynn during rush-hour.

As reported, Alexander Kemp, West Norfolk councillor for Clenchwarton and Lynn South, has warned that the roadworks will threaten the region’s tourism trade, and has called on highway officials to put them on hold during peak times.

He has met the Highways Agency and Interserve Construction who are carrying out the roadwords.

The scheme to resurface and re-waterproof the A47 will see repairs to bridges over the River Great Ouse, River Nar and Harbour Junction.

Until July 29 for 24 hours every day, roads will be reduced to single lanes with a 30mph speed limit.

The Highways Agency said that due to the nature of the work, it is best carried out during the summer when the weather is better.
