A 260m stretch of the road will be closed, between its junction with Ayton Road and where it crosses the B1172 Harts Farm Road, close to the town centre.

The asphalt surface will be replaced along with kerbing and concrete edges. Some sections of dropped curb will also be widened to improve access to driveways, while grassy sections will be reshaped and reseeded where necessary.

And on Wednesday, March 3, a second set of works will take place close by, with a day of road resurfacing scheduled for Norwich Road.

Two areas of the road will be resurfaced. One part is a bend in the road between the junctions with Turner Close and Margaret Reeve Close, while the other is at the service access to the Waitrose supermarket.

The works will take place between 7am and 6pm on that day – though weather conditions may see it extended if necessary.

The road will be fully closed throughout, except for access, while bus stops there will also be suspended until it is completed. A diversion will be in place.

It will also be carried out by council contractors and will cost £32,000 to complete.
