A fully dualled A47 will help to boost the economic prosperity of a large part of the east of England, and make a significant contribution to the national economy. Our programme of staged investment will help turn the 115 miles of the A47 into a genuine strategic link.
Government has committed to investment of over £300m for improvements along the A47 for delivery in the early 2020's. The A47 Alliance's ultimate goal is full dualling with appropriate grade separation (bridges and flyovers), we will continue to push government to deliver this in the longer term.
The estimated cost of a fully dualled A47 is £1.4bn. With a combination of selected improvements, within 20 years there will be 16,890 more jobs in the area, 10,585 new dwellings and an increase of £706m per annum in the economic output (GVA).
