Resurfacing work to junction of Prince of Wales Road and Riverside

Essential maintenance work to the junction at the rail station end of Prince of Wales Road is to begin on Sunday 18 September.
The work to resurface the junction - between Prince of Wales Road, Riverside Road and Thorpe Road - is part of Norwich City Council’s road maintenance programme. It is expected to be completed the following Sunday 25 September. The junction will be open to traffic during weekdays and on Saturdays.
On both Sundays, the Thorpe Road side of the junction will be closed to through traffic. Access will be available either via Prince of Wales Road and Riverside Road or via Prince of Wales Road and the Koblenz Avenue side of the junction.
The closure is necessary to allow work to be carried out as safely and quickly as possible at this busy junction. Drivers should use an alternative route and avoid this junction on the resurfacing days if at all possible, to minimise congestion and avoid delays.
Access to the railway station will be maintained and a signed diversion route will be in place when closures are operating. Temporary traffic signals will be in place at the junction. Delays to traffic are likely and visitors to the railway station should allow some extra travelling time.
No parking will be available within the working area but pedestrians will still be able to use the paths. Vehicle access will be available up to either side of the closure points.
This work is expected to cost approximately £135,000 and will be carried out by May Gurney.
Norwich City Council apologises for any inconvenience caused during this essential work.
