The A11 in Norfolk has had maintenance and concrete repair work completed, promising a smoother journey for commuters.
As part of a £60m investment into East Anglia’s road network by the Highways agency, the A11 in Norfolk has had maintenance and concrete repair work completed, promising a smoother journey for commuters.
As reported by the Eastern Daily Press, the work at the latter half of 2019 included concrete repairs from Tuttles Lane northbound to the Thicktorn roundabout, as well as Barton Mills southbound. There was also resurfacing at Brandon Roundabout, new road markings at Fiveways Red Lodge, plus skid resistance at Newmarket Road.
Last year was the 5th anniversary of the A11, a key link between Norfolk and Suffolk, being converted in to a dual carriageway, and completely bypassing the village of Elveden. The road was mostly already a dual carriageway between Norwich and Newmarket, but only single carriageway through Elveden causing major queues and delays during peak periods.
The increased capacity for traffic on the A11 was a boost to local businesses with better transport links to London and beyond meaning the capital was now only a little more than an hour away, immediately opening up a vast accessible customer base.
Highways England regional director, Martin Fellows, said of the £660,000 A11 improvements: “Keeping the road network in good condition is essential for safety and in helping keep people’s journeys reliable.”
