Roadworks 2019 ?

Recommended Posts

when I lived in a little rural village they were installing gas with a big circular saw like digger, they went down one side of a BT pit and took out the main international link between london and Paris, the down time penalties were measured in thousands of pounds per minute (mind you they were hitting electric lines several times a day too and just paying the penalties as it was cheaper than conventional digging

The notices on the approach to Sutton Bridge say work starts on the 29/9 for 4 weeks.

That was on Sunday (15th) about 8:00am.

That's the 3rd change to start date that I know of, so anybody's guess is probably a good one.

There are road works on the Stalham Bypass, just the Potter side of the Tescos turning to Stalham.

Meanwhile...

 The contract has been signed for the A47 Burlingham dual carrigeway to link the Norwich southern bypass with the Acle bypass.

And

to link the other end of the Norwich southern bypass to the East Dereham bypass.

And

also some other bits of the A47 out of County, but before Peterborough.

All to be completed by 2024..

I went over Sutton bridge this afternoon and there was no sign of any work being done.

There are some signs about saying that there is work to be done but nothing happening today.

When we went west to east last Monday we were held up for about 10 minutes.  That was mid to late morning.

Hope this is helpful.
