Drivers in Norwich have been warned to brace themselves for further disruption when weeks of work starts on roads near Norwich City Football Club's Carrow Road ground.
Highways bosses at Norfolk County Council said “major” highway improvement work on Geoffrey Watling Way, Koblenz Avenue, Carrow Road and Wherry Road is due to start next month.
The work, set to begin on Monday, June 6, will include:
• A new toucan pedestrian/cycle crossing in Koblenz Avenue
• The creation of a new bus gate at the Geoffrey Watling Way/Carrow Road/Koblenz Avenue junction.
• Widening of the footways on both sides of Koblenz Avenue near the new toucan crossing.
• Installation of new traffic signals at the Geoffrey Watling Way/Koblenz Avenue and Wherry Road junctions to serve the new toucan crossing and bus gate.
The work is expected to take about eight weeks to complete and will mean Geoffrey Watling Way and Carrow Road will be closed at the junction with Koblenz Avenue for the full eight weeks.
Wherry Road will be closed at the junction with Koblenz Avenue on, or shortly after, Monday July 4 for four weeks, with traffic signals in Koblenz Avenue between 9.30am and 4pm.
Koblenz Avenue is due to be closed overnight for five nights from Monday, July 25 so the road can be resurfaced, with a diversion route put in place.
