Next week will not be a good time to be travelling between Spixworth and Norwich, especially after 8pm in the evenings. The NDR team have got one week of overnight closures (8pm to 6am) on North Walsham Road to complete the roundabout (postponed from this week) and also starting on Monday is two weeks of 24-hour lights on Buxton Road for Trio to carry out a gas main diversion. Originally the gas main would have been diverted under a full closure of Buxton Road, when the tie-in and diversion of traffic over the new bridge would also have been carried out, but that closure has been postponed until the end of the month to avoid a clash with the North Walsham Road overnight closures. However, having got the work into the gas contractors’ programme, we’ve got to let them get on with it. This all stems back to the last lot of really wet weather (not yesterday) which disrupted the surfacing programme.

Local priorities top of the agenda for small highway schemes More decisions on spending for small highway schemes will now be made locally thanks to a new arrangement which will give county councillors a new budget to spend to meet local priorities. The Local Member Highways Budget is set to be launched at the meeting of the Environment, Development and Transport Committee next week, Wednesday 21 June. The scheme will see each county councillor have control of an annual £6000 budget which can be used on small highway works in their division. In March this year councillors agreed to allocate the new budget totalling £504,000 a year, which could be spent on small highway works such as advisory 20mph signs outside schools, small pavement extensions and modifications, and carrying out additional maintenance to footpaths or verges. And for at least the next two years it’s been confirmed that the new Local Member Highways Budget will be running alongside the popular Parish Partnership Scheme. Letters will be sent out in June to parish and town councils, inviting bids for small highway improvements under the Parish Partnership Scheme. The County Council will supply £300,000 funding, to be matched by bidders. Successful bids will be announced in spring 2018.

Will Jeremy Corbyn ever condemn the IRA? He has repeatedly refused to condemn them, and cannot be trusted to keep our country safe – he wants to abolish our nuclear defences, dismantle our Armed Forces and quit NATO. #BatteForNo10
