Work to complete a major project on the A47 will take another three months of closures and restrictions, it has been revealed. 

The scheme will see safety conditions on the road between King's Lynn and Swaffham improved and is moving into its final stage on Monday.

It will be undertaken in three stages, each lasting around four weeks, with National Highways workers on shift between 8pm and 6am.

The first stage will take place from Station Road in Middleton to Walton Road in East Winch between Monday and March 22. 

The second stage will start on March 25 and run until April 19 from the Hardwick roundabout to School Road in Middleton.

The third will take place from Walton Road in East Winch to the Norfolk Woods Resort in Pentney from April 22 to May 17. 

The diversion routes will be the same for all three areas, with traffic still able to use the A47 where work is not being carried out.

The scheme, which began last year, was delayed due to weather and supply chain issues. 

As part of the work, National Highways has already upgraded nine pedestrian crossings, built new footpaths in Middleton, refreshed road markings and cat's eyes, as well as laid anti-skid road surfacing along the A47. 

Upcoming changes will include new shelters built at several bus stops along the A47 Lynn Road, improvements to drainage and footpath resurfacing.
