Traffic Delays – Local Survey works

Survey works on A1067 Fakenham Road, Broadland Northway/Fakenham Road roundabout, Weston Road, Ringland Lane, and The Broadway

Ferrovial Construction, a contractor working on behalf of Norfolk County Council, intends to carry out survey works on the A1067 Fakenham Road and the Fakenham Road/Broadland Northway roundabout, as well as on three minor roads between the villages of Weston Longville and Ringland, starting later this month. Some short delays to travel and intermittent noise are likely while the surveys are being carried out.

The survey works involve excavating in the highway and associated verge to identify utility services and are being conducted as part of the council’s Norwich Western Link project. The works are due to start on Monday 27 March.

A1067 Fakenham Road and Broadland Northway/Fakenham Road roundabout survey works

From Monday 27 March to Wednesday 29 March, a short section of one lane of the A1067 Fakenham Road near to the Broadland Northway roundabout will be subject to a single lane closure with two way lights to protect workers carrying out the surveys between 8am on 27 March until 5pm on 29 March. Traffic will be controlled by temporary traffic lights and some short delays are lik
Then from Thursday 30 March to Friday 31 March the surveys will be centred on the roundabout that connects Broadland Northway to the A1067 and short sections of the approaches. This will also involve a single lane closure to protect workers carrying out the surveys between 8am on 30 March until 5pm on 31 March. Some short delays are likely.

Weston Road, Ringland Lane and The Broadway survey works

Each of these roads between the villages of Weston Longville and Ringland will be closed to through traffic at different times. Works are scheduled as follows:

  • Weston Road closed from 8am on Wednesday 5 April through to 5pm on Thursday 6 April
  • Ringland Lane closed from 8am on Tuesday 11 April through to 5pm on Wednesday 12 April
  • The Broadway closed from 8am on Thursday 13 April to 5pm on Friday 21 April

The road closures will be in place from 8am on the first day and are due to remain in place for the duration of the surveys, finishing no later than 5pm on the final stated day, however if there is an opportunity to finish the surveys early and remove the road closures sooner, we will endeavour to do so. Access to properties will be maintained and a signed diversion route will be in place throughout the road closures.

The County Council and Ferrovial Construction thank people for their patience while this survey work is carried out.

The Norwich Western Link is a new 3.9 mile dual carriageway road that would connect the A1270 Broadland Northway to the A47 west of Norwich. As well as improving travel between these two major routes, the new road would tackle traffic congestion and delays on the local road network and in communities, and prevent them from worsening due to planned housing and job growth in Greater Norwich.
