East Coast Truckers Convoy 2014
Sunday 24th August.
As usual we expect many thousands of people to line the route to watch this annual event pass by on its way to Gt. Yarmouth and back to County Hall Norwich in the evening.
It is imperative that ECTC maintains its exemplary safety record and this particularly applies to roadside spectators. Therefore, below is a recommended list of places where it will be possible to view the Convoy safely. This list has been approved by the Highways Agency and Norfolk CC.
A47 Blofield Little Chef. This is an ideal spot but the car park is private property so we cannot officially sanction this.
A47 Bridge over at Blofield and Acle. Recommended spots. But spectators with cars are asked not to impede passing traffic.
A47. Layby opposite the White Horse PH. There is a wide grass verge.
Acle roundabout and garage. Wide grass verge with roadside barriers. Possible permission at fire station.
Acle straight cannot be recommended. Any laybys are too narrow for public safety.
Vauxhall, Holiday Park, Gt. Yarmouth. Large grass area well back from the road.
A12 Gapton and Harfreys roundabouts. Footpaths and barriers for protection.
Bridge over A12 near Harfreys roundabout. Ideal spot.
A12 Area around Hospital paths.
A12 Blundeston Roundabout. Grass area back from the road.
A12 Corton Roundabout. North-bound side. Large grass area.
A12 Corton/Lowestoft Roundabouts. Grass areas with some barriers.
For the return journey in the evening as above plus Bridge over A47 at Postwick and two laybys. These are set well back from them road and provide good views of the returning Convoy.
In all instances you are requested NOT to occupy slip roads on and off the main roads. Traffic can be fast moving and drivers must not have their field of vision blocked.
