Work to prepare access to Thetford’s new bus interchange will take place on Sunday.
The first phase will see St Nicholas Street and Minstergate close from London Road to the car park all day, and the same stretch will close from 6pm to 11pm from August 4 to 6.
Businesses and residents have been asked to make alternative parking and delivery arrangements while the £195,000 works take place.
During the second phase, London Road and Norwich Road from 7 Minstergate to 13 Norwich Road will see traffic control measures in place from 9am to 4.30pm from August 4 for up to three weeks.
This will include lane closures with Stop/Go boards being used.
A spokesman for Norfolk County Council, who are responsible for the work, said: “Access to any properties within the limits of the works will be maintained from one end of the closure at any time, but it is inevitable that there will be some disruption.
“The County Council apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.”
Kier Group are carrying out the work on behalf of the county council.
