A £1m project which will see junctions of three busy Norwich roads closed for the rest of October is set to begin tomorrow.

Essential resurfacing will be carried out on Aylsham Road, Holt Road and Cromer Road — meaning closures will be put in place at junctions to the roads. 

Starting Monday, October 18, work to resurface Aylsham Road will begin.

As a result of the works, the following roads will be closed at their junctions with Aylsham Road with a diversion in place: Woodcock Road, Bolingbroke Road (South), Suckling Avenue, Mile Cross Road, and Losinga Cresent (South).

The work is expected to end on October 27.

Badly worn sections of the road will be resurfaced and lining for a new bus and cycle lane layout will be installed to improve bus journeys and reliability.

Norfolk County Council is working with bus operators to reduce delays but passengers are advised to check for any changes to timetables and their journey. 

The £1m funding for the resurfacing works is part of the £31.5m programme of road, pavement and cycleway maintenance that’s taking place across Norfolk this year.
