Roadworks on one of the main gateways to King's Lynn start on Monday and are expected to take three months.

The changes to the junction of Hardwick Road with Hansa Road and Campbell's Meadow are to make way for a new B&Q store and KFCfried chicken restaurant and takeaway but will also improve facilities for cyclists and pedestrians.

The work, which has been funded by developers of the scheme on Hansa Road, includes road widening and new traffic lights at the junction, as well as an extension of the combined pavement and cycle path on the west side of Hardwick Road. It will also improve crossings for pedestrians and approaches to the junction for motorists.

For safety reasons, there will be no access from Hansa Road on to Hardwick Road while construction is in progress, with all traffic leaving the Hardwick Industrial Estate directed via Scania Way.

Vehicles will still be able to enter Hansa Road from Hardwick Road.

Work is due to start today on the reconstruction of the pavement in Leicester Avenue, Gaywood, between the junctions with De Grey Road and Bishop's Road, and is expected to take two weeks. Traffic will be reduced to single file.
