People planning to travel into Norwich using the A11 on Sunday are being warned there could be delays in the area as a number of trees damaged by Storm Doris are removed.

The trees are overhanging the dual carriageway into the city at Cringleford and are likely to become unsafe if left. A contractor, employed by Norfolk County Council, will start to remove the trees at 9am on Sunday.

While the trees are being removed, a section of the left-hand lane of the dual carriageway will be closed and the right-hand lane will be controlled using traffic lights.

The traffic lights will be manually controlled and only turned to red when the contractors need to use both lanes, which should be fairly infrequently.

But there could still be queueing traffic in the area while the works are ongoing, and journeys into Norwich may take longer than usual.

It is hoped that the work to remove the trees will be completed by the afternoon.
