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.
