Norfolk County Council says that if work was not done over 24-hour shifts then road closures would have to be in place for much longer.

In a letter to residents, Norfolk County Council programme technician, Kevin Pickett said: “I want to keep any disruption to the surrounding residences and businesses to an absolute minimum, and will be working with Tarmac throughout these design stages to ensure that this can be the case.”
