Prince of Wales Road in Norwich is set to close for £26k improvement works.

During the closure, a road rejuvenator will be sprayed onto the road to prevent the surface layer deteriorating.

The road will be closed on June 9 between 6am-12pm and will include a suspension of parking and a fully signed diversion route.

Norfolk County Council says it is aiming to preserve asphalt surfaces in a way that is both good for the environment and good value for money.

The rejuvenator has a very low carbon footprint and is used to increase the life of the very expensive surface asphalt layer.

The works, which will be carried out by Norfolk County Council’s infrastructure department and their contractors, are part of an early intervention approach that should make the surface last several years longer than without.
