10:39am 12th October 2017

Wisbech drivers are being warned that the A47 is going to be shut overnight.

Survey work is starting tonight (12th Oct) on the eastbound carriageway.

It'll be from the Terrington St John Road and Church Road junction to Tilney All Saints roundabout.

The investigations will last until tomorrow night (13th Oct) and it will mean the A47 will be completely shut off there.

Work is taking place from 8pm - 6am, if the weather allows it.

There will be diversions up at Wisbech roundabout going through the A1101 and A17 before re-joining the A47 at Pullover Roundabout.

Motorists are being urged to plan ahead before they travel to help the work go smoothly.

Wisbech Town Council have said:

"Please be assured that we have carefully planned these works to take place as quickly as possible at a time when traffic flows are typically at their lightest, in an effort to minimise the inconvenience caused locally.

"Where practicable we will complete noisier activities early in each night shift, but apologies once again for any local inconvenience caused whilst this essential maintenance works takes place."
