Wroxham Road Closure from 6th – 16th October

Wroxham Road closure starts 8pm Friday!

One of the most disruptive closures during construction of Norwich NDR begins at 8pm on Friday (6th) when the A1151 Wroxham Road closes to all traffic  – including cyclists and pedestrians – for a full nine days.

Work will be going on day and night to cut a wide trench through Wroxham Road to install a deep drainage culvert. The road will reopen no later than 6am on Monday 16th.

Diversion from Norwich will be Salhouse Road and then Green Lane West.

The original plan was to bore under the road without a closure, but this would require even deeper pits each side of the road, and keeping these pumped dry would risk damage to an environmentally sensitive area, including The Springs fishing lakes.
