Drivers are to face further disruption as a city centre road junction closes tomorrow for seven night as work to shake up how traffic uses Norwich continues.
There will be overnight road closures at the junction of Ber Street, Golden Ball Street and Timber Hill between 7pm and 7am tomorrow until Monday, February 13.
The work is the latest phase of the £3m Transport for Norwich project which has seen major changes to roads in the city centre, such as pedestrianisation of Westlegate.
The closures are needed so a new raised table and signal controlled pedestrian crossing can be built on Ber Street, near the Golden Ball Street junction.
It will also see a new turning area created in All Saints Green, by its junction with Westlegate. All Saints Street is being pedestrianised as part of the scheme.
During the closures, the alternative route for southbound traffic (heading towards Ber Street) will be via Rouen Road, King Street, Bracondale and Ber Street.
The alternative route for northbound traffic (heading towards Cattle Market Street) will be via Ber Street, Bracondale, King Street, Koblenz Avenue, Riverside, Prince of Wales Road, Rose Lane and Cattle Market Street.
Timber Hill will also be temporarily shut, except for access, on two nights during the closures.
