A McDonald's drive-through on the city outskirts has been gutted as work continues to revamp it with new additions including a glass front.

The Tuckswood restaurant, which is one of the county's busiest, closed for two months in April to allow work to take place to improve its interior and make its drive-through easier to access.

And workers have already removed a large section of the Barrett Road restaurant in order to install the new glass front.

Plans will also see the fast food joint's interior span an additional 35.4sqm and the large McDonald's sign at its entrance replaced.

Its car park will lose two spaces as the pedestrian entrance to the site is relocated, while the kerbs at the drive-through part of the restaurant will be lowered to make it easier for customers to access.

Two new customer ordering screens will be installed as part of work, while existing drive-through booths will be extended for "operational benefit".

Extra illuminated signage will be added to the restaurant, with a rotating totem sign planned.

A new shipping container for more dry storage and a new bin store will also be added to the restaurant.

The site will also see brown cladding added to its grey roof.

The store is currently planned to reopen on Wednesday, June 21.

The revamp comes as McDonald's arch-rival Burger King plans a new drive-through in Postwick.

In the meantime, the chain's closest restaurants are at Chantry Place and Hay Hill in Norwich city centre, with the nearest drive-thrus at Thickthorn and Postwick. 

The franchisee of the Tuckswood branch is Kevin Foley, who owns and runs McDonald's stores in Norwich, Beccles, Cromer and Great Yarmouth.

Mr Foley recently took on his 11th franchise store, in Hoveton, which his father Terry once owned - who was the first UK McDonald’s employee to be granted a franchise, opening a store in central London in 1974.
