The news was greeted positively by Great Yarmouth MP Brandon Lewis, who says that investment has been a long time coming.
The Prime Minister has promised major investment in the A47 as part of what he has described as the "biggest programme of road-building since the 1970s."
The Thickthorn Interchange near Norwich is one part of the road which is thought to be earmarked for improvement.
In a speech to business leaders, David Cameron said he wanted to speed up journey times.
Labour have described the announcement as "a pre-election con trick" but the Prime Minister says he wants to spend £15billion before the end of the decade.
