Construction of the stretch of road south of the Harfreys estate roundabout
did not begin until mid 1991, some years after the northern section. As
with all the route it followed the line of the old Norfolk and Suffolk
Joint Railway and this section required new bridges over Burgh Road and
Beccles Road. The rail bridges over both of these roads had been removed
during the 1970s. Before construction began it was necessary to perform
compulsory purchases on several properties close to the course of the
route, particularly around the Beccles Road junction.
