Work is now nearly complete on supports for the newly-named Lady Julian Bridge linking King Street to Wherry Road, with delivery and installation of the three deck sections now underway.
The main span, which will form the opening part of the swing bridge, was delivered on 22 July, and the next section - the east link which will span over the riverside walk - is being delivered next week.
As before, due to the size of the load it will be necessary to temporarily suspend all parking along King Street to allow access. This will include the section from Carrow Road to Rouen Road junctions, and the section from Rouen Road junction to just beyond St. Anne’s Lane.
To avoid disruption to ring road traffic, the delivery will take place during early hours of Wednesday 5 August.
To allow for any delays, the parking restrictions will apply on three days, from Tuesday 4 August to Thursday 6 August inclusive, but will be lifted once the delivery is complete. Restrictions include all parking including permit and pay-and-display bays.
The third and final deck section is expected to be ready for delivery during week starting 17 August and further information will be sent out beforehand.
The funding from the bridge is made up of £730,000 from the East of England Development Agency (EEDA), £1.7 million secured by Norwich City Council through section 106 developer contributions from the Riverside Development and the City Living St Anne’s Wharf scheme, and a grant of £70,000 from the Greater Norwich Development Partnership (GNDP).
