The improvement works will see sections of the A49 closed between 8pm and 6am with the works taking place until the end of January 2022 as road markings and signs at junctions are renewed.

The work will ensure that the bends and junctions are consistently signed and marked and that the safety of the A49 is maintained for all road users. A number of hazardous trees will also be removed for safety reasons.

A National Highways spokesperson said: “Our work starts on 11 October 2021 and we expect to finish by the end of January 2022. Work will be carried out overnight, from 8pm to 6am, five nights a week. We’ll also be working in multiple phases to reduce the impact on road users and the local economy.

“During the work, we’ll need to close sections of the A49 overnight at various locations. Road signs will be in place ahead of any closures and we’ll update our webpage with information about the scheme and any diversions.

“Please plan ahead and allow additional time for your journey. We’d also like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption to those living close to the work. We’ll make every effort to carefully manage noise levels and additional lighting to minimise the impact.

“Our planned roadworks may be subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.”
