Drainage improvements will be undertaken on Plumstead Road East in Thorpe End in an effort to stop the area flooding.

Works will start on July 10 and the Norwich City Council project is expect to take 11 weeks and cost £135,000.

The road will remain open throughout the works and access will be maintained as far as possible, but the council has warned there will be some disruption.

There will be a signed pedestrian diversion for Holmes Close residents for those who would normally access via the footpath from Plumstead Road East, and access to the allotments will be restricted to the main gate opposite Aerodrome Road only. There will also be temporary vehicular access restrictions to some properties on the southern side of Plumstead Road East, and a suspension of parking within the layby opposite Holmes Close on Plumstead Road East. There will also be a temporary bus stop at the layby.
