Lanes on King’s Lynn’s A47 Hardwick roundabout to be closed overnight for five weeks while street lights are upgraded





Drivers using a major roundabout in Lynn may be impacted by five weeks’ worth of lane closures.

Work started on Wednesday night to upgrade the LED street lighting on the A47 at Hardwick roundabout.

The work, which is being undertaken by National Highways, is taking place overnight from 8pm to 6am on weeknights only.

A National Highways spokesperson said: “To do the work safely, we will need to have a series of single lane closures on the roundabout itself and on the approaches to the roundabout from the A47.

“We are doing this work because LED lights are better for the environment and use far less energy to produce the same amount of light.

“They also last longer and require less maintenance, meaning fewer road closures to fix lighting in the future.”
