IMPROVEMENTS will be made to the Willow Hall Lane junction of the A47 near Thorney next week.

The work is scheduled to start on Monday and involves overnight lane and carriageway closures.

Road signs will be installed and road markings drawn out.

Anna Graham, highways agency project sponsor, said; “Safety is a top priority for the Highways Agency. We’re planning to install signing to improve awareness of the junction and renew the road markings, which will also include a new double white line overtaking restriction past the junction.

“The work has been planned to take place overnight, when traffic flows are lowest, to minimise disruption and will be carried out in two phases.”
