Drivers are being warned to expect delays in Wereham next month as carriageway resurfacing work gets underway.

The road works will begin on May 14 on the B1160 College Road, at the entrances to the Wissington Sugar Beet factory, and are expected to take place over three nights.

To minimise disruption the works will be carried out overnight between 8pm and 6am. Whilst the surfacing works are in progress traffic will be controlled using temporary traffic lights.

Norfolk County Council have said that access to businesses and properties will still be possible but some disruption is “inevitable”.

College Road was one of a number of fenland roads highlighted by the county council last year in their successful bid to secure £3.57m of government funding for road repairs through the department for transport.

They estimates that resurfacing work around the sugar beet factory will cost £62,000.
