Unthank Road pedestrian crossing upgrade

Published on Friday, 19th January 2018

Work to upgrade the pedestrian crossing on Unthank Road will begin on Monday 22 January and is expected to be complete by Friday 2 February.

The improvements will involve removing the existing puffin pedestrian crossing between Lincoln Street and College Road and replacing it with a zebra crossing, along with an integrated speed table and anti-skid carriageway surfacing.

In addition, new gullies will be installed and the road markings will be refreshed.

Traffic management arrangements

  • 22 to 26 January – traffic light controlled lane closure around work area.
  • 29 January to 2 February – temporary closure of Unthank Road between Earlham Road (at the Convent Road roundabout) and Colman Road to install speed table and related works.

Local access will be maintained during all road closures and diversion routes signed.

Special signs indicating businesses remain open will be put in place where required.
