Attleborough road and path works begin this week


Works to improve the infrastructure of Attleborough have started this week.

The footway in Station Road is set to be refurbished, while the New North Road junction with Station Road will be amended as part of the improvements.

It will also involve replacing curbs where necessary, installing edgings and resurfacing the footway.

The work is from the Railway Level Crossing, extending about 60 metres to outside Morters Garage, including the junction with New North Road.

Two-way traffic flows in Station Road will be maintained during the improvements, but the junction of New North Road with Station Road will be closed for traffic for three days, from January 13, to January 15 to enable work on the junction.

Traffic will be directed to access New North Road from Connaught Road, while pedestrians will be escorted during the refurbishments.

The works are expected to last around two weeks. Access to properties and businesses within the works will be maintained.

It will cost the council £15,550, and will be carried out by the Norfolk County Council’s Environment, Transport and Development Department and their contractors May Gurney and Mott MacDonald.

The council has apologised for any inconvenience that may be caused.
