The A47 stretch between Acle and Great Yarmouth is a top priority says one of our readers.

With national news today that central government is making funds available to update A roads to the tune of a billion pounds a year — I trust at last something will be done as to the notoriously dangerous A47 stretch from Acle to Great Yarmouth.

This past week on national news road reports I hear there were two major incidents on this notorious particular stretch — this must be given urgent attention before many more lives are lost.
