Westlegate closed to cars permanently on Monday as part of the huge changes to traffic flow around Norwich city centre.

The roadworks, which are meant to last a year, began at the junction of Rouen Road and Golden Ball Street.

That first phase is now complete and the work is now centred on John Lewis.

With Westlegate closed to general traffic, work will start on the new pedestrian zone with trees set to be planted over the next few months. Access for pedestrians and businesses will be retained.

That will happen as the rest of Farmers Avenue will be two-way. Red Lion Street will be buses, taxis and cycle only.
