Drivers have been warned they are likely to face disruption when three weeks of work is carried out to install a new pedestrian refuge island in Hethersett.

The work, on the B1172 Norwich Road, is due to start on Monday, September 4 and will create a refuge for people crossing the road to and from the Church Farm Shop.

There will also be a new footpath section linking from Shop Lane on the north side of the carriageway to the crossing point and a new footpath on the south side of Norwich Road to connect from the crossing to the farm shop entrance.

Traffic will be controlled by two way signals during the work. Norfolk County Council said it would avoid working peak hours to reduce disruption, but said some would be experienced.

The £16,000 project follows a successful bid by Hethersett Parish Council for match funding through Norfolk County Council's Parish Partnership scheme.
