Multi-million pound Attleborough scheme to restart this month
The third phase of a £4.5 million road improvement project is set to restart next month.
The Transport for Attleborough scheme, which commenced in 2018, aims to improve all forms of transport and support planned growth in the town.
Halted in February due to the coronavirus outbreak, phase three includes widening pavements, road resurfacing, new driver access to Queen’s Square car park and a 20mph speed limit in both Exchange Street and Church Street.
Due to the work, there will be a number of temporary changes, including:
l A 24-hour road closure at the northern end of Exchange Street, preventing vehicles travelling on to Queen’s Square, between August 3 and 14.
l Queen’s Square will be closed between August 8 and 9 for resurfacing, with vehicle access to properties restricted for the whole weekend.
l The entire length of Church Street and Exchange Street will be closed from 7am on August 15 to 6am on August 17.
l Besthorpe Road, from its junction with Surrogate Street, will be closed from 7am on August 15 to 6am on August 17, for resurfacing work.
This section of the project is being carried out by Norfolk County Council’s community and environmental services department, as well as contractors, and is expected to cost around £850,000 to complete.
The fourth and final phase will see improvements to cycling facilities in London Road, with the project set for completion in early 2021.
