The A47 Acle straight will be closed overnight for resurfacing work and night time repairs are also being carried out on the A12 Breydon Bridge.

Work on the Acle straight, which is pitted with potholes on both sides of the carriageway, will also include the repainting of road markings.

The work is due to begin tonight (Monday) and is expected to be completed by 6am on Saturday, March 22.

During this time the road will be shut in both directions between the A47/A1064 Acle roundabout and the A47/A12 Vauxhall roundabout, from 8pm - 6am.

Alongside this, Highways Agency engineers will also be carrying out repairs to the lifting mechanism on the Breydon Bridge.

This work will take place overnight on Wednesday and Thursday and the bridge will be closed.

Motorists will be diverted via the A1064 through Filby and the A149.

  • The Acle Straight was in a poor state when I first travelled (as passenger) some 65 years ago. Ah well. I suppose the repairs are better late than never!

  • Why has this story been listed under the tab 'Crime'..?? the only crime as far as I can see is that it has taken over 6 months for someone to actually do something other than place signs telling you that the road surface is unsafe.!! At last.....perhaps my car will survive driving this pot holed, almost dirt track road for another year or two..??
