A city centre road will be partially closed for six weeks from Monday May 24 while roadworks are carried out.

Work in Palace Street, Norwich, begins this week and is expected to last until July.

The work, costing £110,000, will see repairs done to two damaged sections of pavement along the street.

The inbound lane, for traffic heading towards Tombland, will be closed for the duration of the works, from 6am on Monday until Saturday, July 3.

Pedestrians will be able to pass through, but a signed diversion route is in place for traffic heading into the city.

The diversion drivers will have to follow if they want to access Tombland from the other side of Palace Street.
