A stretch of the A47 will be closed overnight for roadworks.

The road will be closed overnight from July 28 to 29 between South Brink and Guyhirn roundabout near Wisbech.

The road will close from 8pm to 6am both nights to allow for roadworks to take place.

Now that Anglian Water has finished with the mains work, Highways England is completing the eastern widening to the A141, including the installation of new drains, kerbs, placing stone and tarmac.
