WORK is on track to begin the much-awaited dualling of the remainder of the A11.

Contractors from Birse Civils are clearing trees and adding or changing tracks on the nearby Elveden Estate, to keep disruption to a minimum and allow for a improved access to the new A11.

The 9.1-mile dualling, between the Fiveways roundabout at Barton Mills and the end of the Thetford bypass, will cost up to £149 million, with work starting some time between April this year and March 2013.

The current work on the Elveden Estate should be completed by the end of March and is on schedule, a Highways Agency spokesman said.

Dualling should be completed by 2014/15.
