A47 Great Yarmouth junctions improvements
We’re planning improvements to two junctions in Great Yarmouth in order to reduce congestion and improve safety in the area.
The A47 route is the only east to west road link in north East Anglia. It is the main road link between the East Midlands region, Peterborough, Wisbech, King’s Lynn, Norwich and Great Yarmouth.
The Great Yarmouth Third River Crossing, linking the A47 at Harfrey’s Roundabout to the port is currently under construction, and will help reduce congestion and improve access to the A47. However, increased traffic in the future is still likely to constrain long-term economic growth in Great Yarmouth.
Traffic studies show that improving A47 Great Yarmouth junctions at the Vauxhall Roundabout and the Harfrey’s Roundabout would make journeys quicker, safer and more reliable, allow for increased future traffic and help grow the local economy.
This project aims to:
- improve safety and reduce collisions
- reduce delays and make journey times more reliable
- increase the ability of the junctions to cope with incidents such as collisions and breakdowns, or during road maintenance and extreme weather
- approve amenities for cyclists and pedestrians
