People travelling in and around the city will have a number of roadworks to contend with which could cause delays to journeys.

To help make the morning commute, here are some of the major roadworks and closures to be aware of this week.

One road closure drivers will not have to worry about is Sweet Briar Road, which finally reopened after three months of engineering work following a burst water main that damaged the embankment below.

The A146 Loddon Road will see overnight road closures at Holverston to allow resurfacing work to be carried out.

The work begins on Monday, May 30 at 7pm and will should take three days to complete.

This could impact people travelling between Loddon to Norwich between 7pm and 6am. 

There is also a road closure at the A146 Trowse bypass between 8pm and 6am until June 5. 

The Riverside area has continuing roadworks near the train station as part of the Transforming Cities scheme.

Riverside Road, Thorpe Road, Lower Clarence Road, and St Stephens are affected. The work is to continue until late July.
