PLANS went on display this week to show people what the new stretch of the A11 between Barton Mills and Thetford will look like.

West Suffolk MP Richard Spring said: “After a 16-year battle to get a firm commitment for the dualling of the A11 between Fiveways roundabout and Thetford, I am overjoyed that the draft orders have now been published.

“This is a moment that has been a very long time coming. If there is no public inquiry then this timetable could be brought forward by about six months.”

The exhibition was at The Guildhall in Thetford yesterday.
