Work to resurface west and east carriageways of the A47 in the Dereham area was due to start tonight and continue for 12 nights.
The work includes crack and joint repairs to the concrete carriageway, replacement of concrete carriageway bays, removal and replacement of traffic signs, removal of some trees and installation of a safety barrier.
The work, which is weather dependent, will cover the stretch between the Beeston Road junction and the Toftwood interchange with the A1075, a distance of 4.35 miles. It is to be carried out using lane closures with traffic restricted to a single lane running in a convoy system.
When the convoy system is in operation, a 10 mph speed restriction will be in place with a 40 mph speed restriction at all other times.
