Members of the A47 Alliance came together at County Hall in Norwich on FridayMay 11 to discuss ongoing efforts to convince the Government to invest in the A47. Currently just 47 per cent of this major route is dual carriageway and while Highways England have committed to making £300m of improvements to the road, including dualling some stretches, and upgrading Guyhirn roundabout, this will still leave substantial sections of the A47 as single carriageway with no current plans to dual them.

The Just Dual It! campaign, which is being led by Norfolk County Council is calling on the Government to commit to make funding available to dual the entire length by 2030.
