Lack of lights along A47

Reported via mobile in the Street lighting (NH) category anonymously at 18:30, Sat 12 February 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3307507.

From Great Yarmouth to Norwich the A47 (acle straight) has many street lights which for weeks on end have not been working. I travel this road every Saturday evening and there have been very few working lights for months. The bend in the middle is worst lit and being on a bend with poor lighting it is difficult to make out the cars coming in the opposite direction location. With this being such a notoriously bad road for accidents I feel it should be better lit and maintained.

  • Thank you for contacting National Highways regarding street lighting on the A47. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention.

    Works are planned on the Acle straight next week to upgrade the lighting around Halvergate, with signs out in the meantime to warn of the lighting not being in use.
