The following update has been received from Norfolk County Council regarding the temporary road closure on Back Lane for carriageway resurfacing. We have been advised that the ‘direction’ for access to the Village Hall and neighbouring properties will vary daily depending on which section is being resurfaced. Some days access will be from the Churchfields direction and on others it will be from the Henstead Road/Little Melton Road direction. Which direction will only be known on the day:
“Work will begin on Monday 19 November to carry out major carriageway resurfacing works on Back Lane, Hethersett. The work take four days to complete subject to suitable weather conditions.
The site will extend from the junction with Little Melton Road eastwards to the junction with Baker Drive & Churchfields.
During the resurfacing works it will be necessary to close the road to all through traffic at this location. A fully signed official diversion route via Norwich Road, Queens Road & Henstead Road will be in operation between 7.30am and 5.00pm each day.
Vehicle access to businesses and properties within the limits of the closure will be maintained from one end at all times. Pedestrian access will be maintained while work is underway.
The County Council would like to thank people for their patience while these works to replace the existing damaged road surface are carried out.
The work which will cost £54,000 will be carried out by Norfolk County Council’s Community & Environmental Services Department and their contractors.
