A FOUR mile stretch of the A47 between Guyhirn and Wisbech is to close for seven out of nine nights next month.

The Highways Agency says the closure will enable the road to be resurfaced and road markings renewed.

Work will start on Thursday July 4 and is expected to be complete by 6am Saturday July 13.

Highs Agency spokesman Aran Nugent said the work was being carried out overnight to minimise disruption.

He said: “This work has been scheduled to take place overnight, Monday to Friday nights only, to minimise disruption to road users.

Work is due to begin at 8pm on Thursday 4 July and complete by 6am on Saturday 13 July. Both the east and westbound carriageways will be closed overnight between 8pm and 6am while work takes place.
