Works to resurface a stretch of a city centre road will see buses diverted over the next three days - and will likely cause delays for commuters.

From this morning, Monday, March 8, Market Avenue in Norwich will be closed between Rose Lane and Castle Meadow to allow for resurfacing to be done to the road, which also leads to the Castle Quarter car park.

As a result, several bus services will bypass Castle Meadow, instead being diverted up Cattle Market Street, either to St Stephens Street or directly to the bus station.

The diversions will see buses bollards removed from the pedestrianised All Saints Green, which will be used by vehicles for the first time since it traffic was removed from it in May 2017.

Konectbuses has said its following services will be affected: 5, 5A, 5B, 5C, 8, 33, 37A, 50, 50A, 501, 502.

The resurfacing is scheduled to be completed on Wednesday, March 11.
