A stretch of Magdalen Road in Norwich will be closed for up to five nights next month as work on a cycle scheme gets underway.

Starting on Wednesday, October 18, Norfolk County Council said the resurfacing work will see the road closed from its junction with Magdalen Street to a point 328m north of the junction.

It will enable contractors to resurface the road from 28 to 50 Magdalen Road for a cycle scheme. Anglian Water will also carry out maintenance work in the same area.

Although the council said the work is expected to only take five nights, it also said the expected completion date is Tuesday, October 31.

The road closure will be in force between 7pm and 6am. The council said the work will create a dedicated cycle lane along Magdalen Road, heading northbound, introduce a 20mph speed limit and new traffic signal layout to improve movements for cyclists and pedestrians.

It has received £425,000 in funding from the Department for Transport cycle city ambition grant
