Motorists have been warned of impending road closures next week as part of continuing highways improvements.

The A11 near Thetford will be closed in both directions overnight on Thursday and Friday while the Highways Agency works on the recently installed Gibson’s accommodation bridge as part of the Fiveways scheme.

The road will be closed between the Fiveways roundabout and the B1106 Elvedon crossroads from 10am to 6am the following morning on both days, The work is expected to complete by 6am on Saturday, June 14.

Highways Agency project manager, Geoff Chatfield, said: “We have to close a short section of the A11, when traffic flows are at their lowest, to allow road workers to safely continue work at Gibson’s accommodation bridge.

“We have worked closely with local partners to ensure disruption to road users during the closure is kept to a minimum.”

Diversion via the A1065 and B1107 will be in place during the closures, with advance warning signs placed along local roads.

Road users are advised to plan ahead and allow extra time for their journeys prior to setting out.
