A road is due to close for two weeks with a diversion route in place for resurfacing works.

Work to resurface the carriageway on a section of Wisbech Road, between the cut bridge and Saddlebow Road, in King’s Lynn will begin on Sunday, July 29.

The resurfacing will see the old worn-out road surface replaced and the reconstruction of the existing raised tables at the toucan crossings and speed cushions.

The red section of road surface at the start of the 20mph limit will be replaced with a large 20mph roundel painted on the road.

The road will remain closed for the duration of the works although this may be suspended on the weekend of August 4 dependant on works progress and weather conditions.

There will be access for residents where possible but at certain times during the resurfacing works there will be no access to parking bays and so residents are being urged to park at alternate locations.
