NDR Traffic Update – Overnight closures of Holly Lane, February closure of Salhouse Road Holly Lane, a well-used route connecting the B1149 Holt Road and Reepham Road, will be closed for two nights next week for gas main diversion work on the route of Norwich Northern Distributor Road. The closures will be from 8pm to 6am at the latest on the nights of Monday 30 January and Tuesday 31 January. Over the next two weeks temporary signals – traffic lights or stop/go boards – will be in use as needed on a number of routes crossed by the NDR, including Fir Covert Road, Reepham Road, the B1149 Holt Road, A140 Cromer Road, B1150 North Walsham Road, A1151 Wroxham Road, Salhouse Road and Plumstead Road. Where possible they will only be used outside peak hours. Early warning of Salhouse Road closure Salhouse Road will be closed between the Blue Boar Lane/Woodside Road junction, Sprowston, and the Sole & Heel roundabout at Rackheath for three days from Monday 27 February to Wednesday 1 March. The closure is to allow deep drainage trenches to be dug across the road as part of construction of Norwich Northern Distributor Road. Salhouse Road is not wide enough to allow this work to be carried out under any other form of traffic management. Traffic will be diverted via Woodside Road, Plumstead Road and Broad Lane/Green Lane East. Norfolk County Council and Balfour Beatty apologise for any inconvenience caused by road closures and other traffic management measures during the construction of Norwich Northern Distributor Road.

Just received a briefing to update me on progress in Norfolk’s role in the Syrian Refugee Crisis. It is planned at the start of February five Syrian families, all with very young children will be resettled in Norwich to start their new lives in our county. As an humanitarian, I am proud to have voted in favour of Norfolk taking part in the UK’s response to the Syrian crisis and am proud that we can give these children an opportunity to prosper as a citizen of our county and country – something that we too often take for granted.

Norfolk County Council and Balfour Beatty today (Mon) confirmed that the closure of Plumstead Road for the bridge beam lift will now begin on Wednesday 18 January. The lift and 2-3 day road closure was originally scheduled to begin tomorrow (Tues 17th), but was postponed on Friday after heavy snow, sleet and wind prevented essential preparations, including scaffolding work which is now underway. Plumstead Road will therefore remain open tomorrow (Tues 17th) and will close in the early hours (between 4am and 5am) of Wednesday 18 January, staying closed on Thursday 19th and the following night. Plumstead Road will reopen when work is complete on Friday 20 January. The exact timing of reopening will depend upon progress, but will be as soon as it is safe to do so. During the closure of Plumstead Road, at peak hours a shuttle bus will operate from the Green, Thorpe End, to the temporary stop near the junction with Green Lane North. Please note that as a further contingency, the on-site signage will also include Saturday 21st as a potential closure date for Plumstead Road. This is so that if for any reason the works over-run , they can continue on Saturday morning. Without this notification, work would have to stop and be completed under a fresh closure, causing further disruption. Norfolk County Council and Balfour Beatty apologise for the inconvenience caused by this closure of Plumstead Road.

Road closure at A1151 Norwich Road, Wroxham for carriageway resurfacing Work will begin on Sunday 22 January to carry out carriageway resurfacing works on A1151 Norwich Road, Wroxham. The site will extend from Wroxham Bridge southwards for approx. 130 metres. During the surfacing operations essential bridge maintenance works will also be carried out. All work will be carried out between 7.00 am and 7.00 pm and will take one day to complete. These surfacing works are subject to suitable weather conditions and could be postponed if there is inclement weather on the day. During the resurfacing works it will be necessary to close the road to all through traffic. A fully signed diversion via A1151 Norwich, A1042 Norwich Ring Road, B1150 Coltishall, B1354 Hoveton, A1151 Wroxham will be in place for the duration of the works. An alternative route for HGV’s will be in place via B1150 North Walsham, A149 Dilham & A1151 Hoveton Access to businesses and properties within the limits of the works will be maintained from one end of the closure at any time but it is inevitable that there will be some disruption. The County Council apologises for any inconvenience this may cause. The work which will cost £54,000 will be carried out by Norfolk County Council’s Community & Environmental Services Department and their contractors.
