To allow the work to be carried out safely and swiftly it will be necessary to close the road to through traffic on a couple of dates when the surfacing is under way and line painting is being carried out. Access to properties will be maintained at all times.
The work, which is weather dependent, will be carried out in phases with any road closures only in place for a number of hours at a time on the following dates:

  • Saturday 14 May (surface dressing);
  • Tuesday 24 May (road marking replacement), overnight from 7 pm.

A fully signed diversion route will be in operation for the duration of the works. Norfolk County Council thanks people for their patience while this essential road maintenance work is carried out.
The work, which will cost £18,000, will be carried out by the county council’s Community and Environmental Services Department and its contractor, Tarmac and Kier Highway Services.
The alternative route is via: B1145 Cawston Road/High Street/Aylsham Road, B1149 Holt Road/Brewery Lane, A1270 Broadland Northway, A1067 Fakenham Road/Norwich Road/Sparham Hill/Main Road, B1145 Norwich Road/Reepham Road/Bawdeswell Road/Dereham Road/Station Road (Felthorpe, Sparham, Reepham, Great Witchingham, Haveringland, Weston Longville, Morton on the Hill, Attlebridge, Hevingham, Bawdeswell, Horsford, Taverham, Stratton Strawless, Cawston, Salle, Drayton).
