A47 / A11 Thickthorn Junction User Survey

Closed 10 May 2022

Opened 12 Apr 2022


With more than 600 miles of motorways and major A roads in the Eastern region, our roads provide main routes taking people and freight from the ports of the East Coast through the region to the M25, M1 and A1.The strategic road network keeps the region connected to the rest of the country.

We’re delivering an unprecedented level of investment in our roads to increase capacity and reduce congestion to reduce journey times and to make journeys more reliable and safer.

The A47 Thickthorn junction improvement is one of six schemes along the 115-mile route between Peterborough and Great Yarmouth. It will improve the junction between the A47 and the A11 by adding two new link roads to ease congestion in the area.

In addition to the Thickthorn scheme, three sections of the A47 will be improved to dual carriageway; between Blofield and North Burlingham, and between North Tuddenham and Easton, while in Cambridgeshire between Wansford and Sutton. Work to improve the Guyhirn junction near Wisbech was completed on 31 March 2022.

We would like to hear your views on how you use the A47 / A11 Thickthorn Junction. This survey takes between five and 10 minutes to complete and we invite anyone to take part. By taking part in our survey, you will help us to:

  • Better understand customer journeys around the A47/A11 junction, so we can start to plan our construction work ahead of the next stage of the proposed scheme. We are planning this now (ahead of the Secretary of State’s decision) so we can minimise any impacts on road users and the local community, to ensure construction work is completed in a timely manner, if the scheme is granted consent.   
  • Keep you updated on progress and work on our three proposed schemes in the Norfolk area.
