Warning on city traffic

Extensive roadworks to improve the flow of traffic on part of the inner ring road will involve part of the major route around Norwich reduced to one lane later this month.

Extensive roadworks to improve the flow of traffic on part of the inner ring road will involve part of the major route around Norwich reduced to one lane later this month.

The next step of the scheme at Barrack Street and Whitefriars roundabout, which began in July, will involve resurfacing the road during half term week.

From October 21 to October 28, Barrack Street will be reduced to one lane with a one-way system in place.

Traffic heading east from Whitefriars to the Kett's Hill roundabout will use Barrack Street, but westbound traffic going towards Whitefriars will be diverted at the Kett's Hill roundabout up to the outer ring road and back into the city via Sprowston Road to the Whitefriars roundabout - a detour of about four miles.

Access to properties along and leading off Barrack Street will be maintained at all times.

However, residents living in Silver Road will not be able to enter Silver Road from Barrack Street as the road will be closed at this junction. Residents will instead have to enter from the other end of Silver Road.
