From January 22 to 26 there will be traffic light-controlled lane closure around work area.

From January 29 to February 2, there will be the temporary closure of Unthank Road between Earlham Road and Colman Road to install speed table and related works.

Local access will be maintained during all road closures and diversion routes signed.
