Drivers have been warned of road closures and diversions on the A47.

Highways England is planning work including resurfacing, traffic signal replacement and refreshment of road markings on Beccles Road and Shrublands Way in Gorleston.

The work is scheduled to begin on September 9 and will take approximately six weeks.

From September 9 to October 15, there will be a full closure of the A47/A143 on and off slip roads and the Shrublands Way/A143 junction.

There will also be two-way traffic light and lane closures on the A143 Beccles Road and Shrublands Way junction.

The same junction will be fully closed from October 2 to October 9 between 8pm and 6am on weekdays.

For northbound motorists, the diversion begins at B1534/Beaufort Way and continues along the A47, B1370, Beccles Road and William Adams Way before rejoining the A47 at Harfreys roundabout.

Southbound traffic will follow the route in reverse.

The diversions are expected to add approximately five to ten minutes to the usual route.
