Another local authority has thrown its weight behind the Just Dual It campaign.
Breckland Council agreed its support at a full council meeting this week to encourage the government to pump millions into the A47 to make it a dual carriageway.
At the moment only 47pc of one of the most important roads in the region is dualled and while £300m of improvements are in the pipeline, only eight futher miles will be dualled.
Breckland Council's leader William Nunn said: 'Breckland Council fully supports the Just Dual It campaign. Improving this essential infrastructure will bring benefits to residents, visitors and businesses alike.
'Making journeys shorter and safer can only be a good thing and improving Norfolk's connectivity with the rest of the country is essential to our ongoing success and future prosperity.'
