Drivers could have a smoother journey after spending £660,000 on improvements on the A11.

A road renewal and maintenance scheme across the east of England, worth £8.4m, saw the funds invested in the dual carriageway.

From September to November work took place, including concrete repairs from Tuttles Lane northbound to the Thickthorn roundabout, resurfacing at Brandon Roundabout, new road markings at Fiveways Red Lodge southbound, concrete repairs and skid resistance at Barton Mills southbound, skid resistance at Newmarket Road northbound and skid resistance resurfacing at Newmarket Road, Fiveways.

The work is a part of a £60m-plus investment that Highways England is delivering into maintaining and operating the region's roads for drivers between April 2019 and March 2020.
