Highway works are due to commence on Monday 29 July 2019 on Church Road for a duration of three weeks, West of Hethel Road to the public footpath. The works are to install kerbing to a section of the trod path continuing from work started last year. There will be some drainage installation work and repairs to the trod path carried out at the same time.

The road will be closed to traffic until work is complete. However pedestrian access will be maintained. There is a diversion for drivers: a signed diversion route along Church Road, B1113 Norwich Road, C594 Wymondham Road, Gravel Pit Lane and Ashwellthorpe Road will be in place. The diversion route is mapped here.

This work is being carried out during the school holidays to minimise disruption.

The County Council thanks people for their patience whilst this work is carried out.

The work which will cost £21000 will be carried out by Norfolk County Council’s Community and Environmental Services Department and their contractors.

Mill Lane – Work to improve pedestrian safety

Work to install a new pedestrian safety barrier at the entrance to a school field on Mill Lane is due to start on or shortly after Monday 9 April 2018 for one week. Note that the start date may change slightly as this work is part of a series the contractors will be working on and there may be unforeseen delays or hold-ups due to poor weather.

Work to widen the pavement at the site will also be done at the same time. Due to the limited road widths available, a road closure has been deemed the safest and quickest way to complete these works and a signed diversion via Mill Lane, C129 Church Road, B1113 Norwich Road and Mill Lane will be in place throughout. Vehicular access to properties may be restricted during working hours however pedestrian access to properties will be maintained.

The County Council thanks you for your patience while this work is carried out.

The work which will cost £1,600.00 will be carried out by Norfolk County Council’s Community and Environmental Services Department and their contractors. 

For Further Information: Mr Alex Thorburn, Locality Designer, 0344 800 8020.


We have received notification from NCC that the road though Top Row will be closed from 15 January to 18 February. This is to enable work to replace the water main through Top Row to go ahead.

As yet we do not know precisely what this means for residents in Top Row and will seek clarification in the next few days. Will Top Row residents make sure they and their neighbours are aware of this planned closure.
