A popular walking and cycling route is set to close for four weeks to allow resurfacing work to take place.

Part of Marriott's Way in Drayton will be closed from February 19 for the work by Norfolk County Council.

The council claims the work, taking place between Costessey Lane and the A-frame bridge over the River Wensum, will result in a safer and more accessible free-draining route.

The park will be closed to the public while the work is under way, with a diversion route via Drayton High Road and Hellesdon Road.

The work will see paths widened, trees cleared and the installation of a new stair set with handrails for pedestrians. 

Funded by the Greater Norwich Growth Board, it will be carried out by Norfolk County Council's Community and Environmental Services Department and its contractors.
