Norwich commuters could face traffic disruption as a new spate of roadworks begins in the city centre.

St Stephens Road and Ipswich Road will see road closures and temporary traffic lights as work begins next month to improve the area for walkers and cyclists.

Work will include a new continuous footpath being installed across the junction of Town Close Road and Ipswich Road as well as tightening of the existing junction of Cecil Road and Ipswich Road to reduce vehicle speeds.

From Monday, April 3, the junction of Town Close Road and Ipswich Road and the junction of Cecil Road and Ipswich Road will be closed, while two-way temporary lights will be installed on Ipswich Road near the two junctions.

The junction closures will be in place until Wednesday, April 19.

An additional set of temporary signals will be in Ipswich Road and the Ipswich Grove bus stop will be suspended as workers relocate the stop.

This work is expected to last two days.

From Thursday, April 6, Grove Road will close from its junction with Ipswich Road to its junction with Trafford Road and the path located between Newmarket Road and Ipswich Road will also close.

Closures will continue until remedial work following the completion of the St Stephens Road cycling and walking improvement project from last year is completed.

It comes after previous work in the area saw numerous delays as cable work took longer than expected and traders warned roadwork "carnage" was hitting trade hard.

Further work taking place in the same area during late summer will see a new segregating cycle lane installed, the introduction of a new 20mph speed limit on Ipswich Road and parking bays altered.

As much as £1.2m has been allocated for the works from the second phase of the government’s Active Travel Fund.
