The project to build the Northern Distributor Road (NDR) north of Norwich enters a new phase on Monday, with the closure of Drayton Lane.
Drayton Lane, which links the B1149 Holt Road and Reepham Road, will close for the foreseeable future, to allow the next stage of the project to continue.
A 30 mph speed limit is also being introduced on Reepham Road at the same time. Holly Lane, further to the south, will provide an alternative route between the Holt and Reepham roads.
Drayton Lane is being re-aligned so that it runs from a new roundabout on the B1149 Holt Road to a roundabout on the NDR. Once complete in 2017, all Holt Road traffic will use this route.
In the Plumstead area, Smee Lane has reopened, with Low Road closing today until 22 April. This will be followed by the long-term closure of Middle Road, from 25 April, for the construction of a bridge that will take Middle Road over the NDR.
Once that bridge is open late next year, Smee Lane and Low Road will be permanently closed as through-roads.
Meanwhile, work is being stepped up on the construction of NDR roundabouts on the A1067 Fakenham Road and Fir Covert Road. Temporary traffic control will be used when needed, off-peak on the A1067, and not at weekends. Both roundabouts are scheduled for completion later this year.
