Drivers are being warned to expect disruption on the outskirts of Norwich as major resurfacing works will be carried out in early June.

Improvement work costing £300,000 is scheduled on the A11 Newmarket Road, Cringleford, and will extend from a point south of the Colney Lane overbridge through to Thickthorn Roundabout, including Roundhouse Roundabout and a section of the southbound on-slip from the junction with Keswick Road.

The scheme starts on June 6 and will be carried out overnight between 7pm-7am, taking around two weeks to complete.

During the resurfacing works it will be necessary to close the road to all through traffic each night at 7pm.

A fully signed diversion via A47 Southern Bypass, A140 Ipswich Road/Daniels Road will be in place for the entire duration of hte project.
