Roadworks at a busy Sprowston junction start today and are likely to cause disruption until March. 

The work at the junction between Constitution Hill, North Walsham Road, George Hill, and School Lane will see a new pedestrian crossing installed, an update to the traffic lights system and the road resurfaced.

It is expected to last 32 days and will be done in stages to minimise disruption.

From Monday, George Lane and School Lane will be closed at the junction with the B1150.

Two-way traffic lights will be in place in Constitution Hill and North Walsham Road to allow for the installation of new crossings.

From Saturday, February 19, the whole junction will be closed so the road can be resurfaced.

Access to private properties and businesses will be maintained during the work which will cost £83,385.
