An overrunning project to repair a Norwich bridge for the fourth time in just over two years will see it closed against this weekend.

The Carrow Road lifting bridge will be closed overnight during the weekend of October 16-18 to allow necessary repair work to be completed.

A routine inspection of the bridge identified a number of defects in the timber decking road surface in need of repair.

The road will be closed while the work is carried out, and will need to remain closed for a time once the repairs have been completed, to allow for the surface to dry.

It will be closed from 7pm on Friday, October 16 until 7am, then from 7pm on Saturday, October 17 until 7am.

A signed diversion route will be in place and pedestrian access across the bridge will be maintained at all times.
