Road closure in Norwich disrupts commuters
Drivers are continuing to face disruption today due to a busy city road closure.
Palace Street, which runs from the Maid's Head Hotel to the Law Courts, has been closed to traffic since Monday, January and will continue to be closed for a total of 23 days.
The closure is due to UK Power Networks (formerly EDF energy) which is upgrading power supplies for a customer in the Palace Street area.
A spokesman for UK Power Networks said: 'The work involves digging trenches to bury ducts for electricity cables which will be pulled through and joined to the existing power network.
'We have worked closely with the local authority in planning this work, which will cater for an increase in demand for electricity arising from additional power needs.
You may also want to watch:
'Any project to improve the power network involved a considerable degree of work and we apologise for any inconvenience our work may cause. We are mindful that this is a busy area and will be doing anything we can to minimise disruption.'
Temporary traffic lights will be installed in Tombland during the weekend of January 22 and advanced warning signs have been positioned along the route.
