A busy road into Norwich will be closed over the next month for roadworks, after weather delayed the start date.

Surface dressing work on Ipswich Road, which was scheduled for July 23, had to be cancelled due to bad weather.

It will now go ahead on August 1 to August 3, for road resurfacing, and during the evenings of August 10 to August 12 for re-lining and traffic loop re-cutting.

There will be a 20mph speed limit introduced on Ipswich Road from the junction of Grove Avenue to the junction of Town Close Road.

During the works, Ipswich Road will be closed from its junction with Newmarket Road to its junction with Daniels Road, from 7pm to 6am the following day and no noisy works will take place after 11pm.
