Final countdown to roundabout closure

0 Published on Thursday, 24th May 2018

Drivers are being asked to plan ahead in the countdown to the Norwich Dereham Road/Sweet Briar Road roundabout closure next week.

Between Monday 28 May and Friday 1 June, the area will be closed in all directions for five days while resurfacing of the new roundabout and its approaches takes place.

Councillor John Fisher, Norfolk County Council Chair of Norwich Highways Agency Committee, says: “Whether you’re commuting or just out and about in Norwich next week during half-term, please take a few minutes to find out more about the closure.

“This is a significant event for the city’s transport network and the decision for a full road closure has not been taken lightly. On balance, this approach represents the quickest, safest and most efficient way to complete the work to the best possible standard.

“I’d also like to ask people to help by spreading the word to friends and family. The more informed we are across the city, the better prepared we’ll be to keep the roads moving as well as possible during this time.

“We understand that it will be disruptive and frustrating for all those affected and really appreciate everyone's patience while work takes place.”

This work marks the last phase of the Transport for Norwich project, which is designed to improve journey times for all traffic and increase the roundabout’s capacity for the future.
