A section of the A47 near King’s Lynn will close tonight (Friday) for the weekend.

The carriageway beneath the Saddlebow interchange will be shut in both directions from 8pm and will not re-open until 6am on Monday.

A £3m project to repair the bridges over the carriageway started in October and is expected to be finished in the spring.
