Motorists warned to prepare for diversions on Norwich’s inner ring road

Motorists are being warned resurfacing in the city will affect traffic on Norwich's inner ring road next week.

Norfolk County Council is carrying out work to the junction of Dereham Road, Barn Road, St Benedict's Street and Grapes Hill as part of the Bus Rapid Transit route along Dereham Road.

But diversions will be put in place on the ring road to enable this to happen.

From Monday 7pm to Tuesday 7am, southbound traffic on the ring road will be diverted at the Barn Road/St Crispins Road roundabout along Barker Street, Heigham Street, Old Palace Road, Heigham Road, Earlham Road and Convent Road.

Eastbound traffic heading into St Benedict's Street will be diverted along Barn Road and Westwick Street. HGVs will have to follow a separate signed diversion.
