Councillors back call for A47 action
County councillors have overwhelmingly backed a new call for the main route linking Lynn with Norwich and Peterborough to be improved.
A motion calling for the government to make a commitment to make the A47 a continuous dual carriageway was passed by Norfolk County Council at a meeting in Norwich yesterday.
Only the Green Party voted against the motion.
As previously reported, calls have grown for the road to be improved in the wake of several fatal accidents over the Christmas period, including the incident in which Sutton Bridge sisters Tamzin and Jessica Portor died.
Two more fatal accidents happened on the route near Norwich yesterday morning.
