I write to inform you that Kier will be undertaking road repair works at the above location, on behalf of Highways England. These emergency works are occurring due to recent inclement weather resulting in a rapid deterioration of the road surface. Whilst in the area, we will also take the opportunity to perform drainage repairs.
We plan to complete this work over 10 nights, from Monday 12 March, with working hours of 8pm until 6am, weather permitting. Works will take place on weeknights only and will finish 6am on Saturday 24 March.
Starting Monday 12 March, there will be a single lane closure of the A11 northbound between Spooner Row and Tuttles Lane interchanges, lasting two nights.
Starting Monday 12 March, there will be a closure of the A11 north bound entry slip road at Besthorpe interchange lasting six nights.
Starting Wednesday 14 March, there will be a full northbound closure of the A11 northbound between Spooner Row and Tuttles Lane interchanges, lasting seven nights.
Starting Friday 22 March, there will be a full northbound closure of the A11 northbound between Tuttles Lane and Thickthorn interchanges, lasting one night.
We advise motorists to allow extra time to complete their journey whilst using the diversion route. We encourage drivers to stick to speed limits and follow appropriate signage.
Throughout all the closures listed above traffic will be diverted along the B1172, through Wymondham and Hethersett, and instructed to re-join the A11 at Thickthorn interchange. This diversion route will be clearly signed.

We have carefully planned these works to take place during weekday off peak hours, when traffic flows are at their lightest. We apologise for the local inconvenience these works may cause and thank you for your patience whilst we carry out strategic maintenance to the road network. We would be grateful if you would share information locally about the works.
