Drivers face more than a month of disruptions at a major road junction into the city for £270,000 traffic light works.

The replacement of the lights at the Martineau Lane and Trowse Bypass junction is due to start on July 22.

The junction will remain open at all times, but lane restrictions will be necessary to provide safe working zones for operatives.

The project is part of a countywide traffic signal replacement programme which is expected to take five weeks to complete.

This involves updating traffic lights where necessary to ensure they continue to meet current standards and work reliably and efficiently.

Three-way temporary traffic lights will be in place during the works, which will be carried out in stages.

This includes the removal of old equipment and cables, the installation of a new underground infrastructure and the installation of new traffic signal equipment and cables.

The new lights will then be tested and monitored over a number of weeks to ensure they are working as intended.

The work has been scheduled when traffic flows are reduced during the school summer holidays.

The project will be carried out by Norfolk County Council’s Infrastructure Department and their contractors.
