With regards to the delay with getting the HGV re route in place, I can confirm that the hold up still lays with Highways England and the last update I received stated that  Kier who are approving and undertaking the works on the A11 for the advance signs and NCC have agreed locations, and designs but have hit a problem in that the advance signs on the east bound approach to the B1111 junction need to be well in advance and are very large (3m x 5m) so need big posts and foundations.
The issue they have is that in the verge is the main fibre optic BT cable from Norwich to Newmarket so NCC need to do some trial holes through Kier so they can see how deep it is and if they can get the foundation in.
This will require a lane closure to do the trial holes which will not happen quickly.
