Disruption expected during Diss roadworks

Motorists and pedestrians in a Norfolk town may experience some disruption while work takes place to improve a footpath.

Workmen from Norfolk County Council are due to start work on the path in Chapel Street, Diss on, or shortly after, March 19 and the project will include the construction of a new length of footway outside the BT telephone exchange.

A new wall is to be constructed outside the telephone exchange, following the new highway boundary.

A county council spokesman said the road would remain open for the duration of the works, expected to last six weeks.

The one way traffic using Chapel Street will be controlled with a Stop/Go board and pedestrian traffic will be escorted past the works by two gatemen, but the spokesman said there may be disruption.
