NDR Traffic Update No 43 – Holt Road, Reepham Road, Salhouse Road, Wroxham Road and Green Lane West
13 April 2017
All routes crossed by the Northern Distributor Road will be kept clear of temporary traffic lights over the four-day Easter holiday, but traffic management will be use again when work resumes on Tuesday (18th). This includes the closure of Reepham Road.
B1149 Holt Road – signals after closure
The B1149 Holt Road, which has been closed since Monday, is scheduled to reopen later today (Thurs 13 April) after the surfacing and tie-in of the New Drayton Lane roundabout. The road will be kept clear over the Easter holiday, but traffic lights will be used off-peak next week (18th-21st) for finishing off work.
Reepham Road - closure
Reepham Road will close for up to three weeks from Tuesday 18 April to complete the construction and tie-in of the Drayton Lane roundabout. For traffic from the Reepham direction, the diversion will be via Fir Covert Road and the A1067. From Norwich, the diversion will be along Boundary Road (Ring Road), the A1067 Drayton High Road/Fakenham Road and Fir Covert Road.
Drayton Hall Lane and School Road, Drayton, are not suitable diversion routes. Both are traffic calmed, and School Lane passes two schools and has a 7.5 tonne weight limit so cannot legally be used as a through-route by HGVs.
Salhouse Road – signals followed by closure
Two-way traffic lights will be in use from Tuesday 18 April as construction of the NDR roundabout continues. These will stay in place until the road closes on 8 May for two weeks to complete the roundabout and tie-in to the existing road.
Green Lane West (at North Walsham Road) - signals
From Wednesday (19th) to Friday (21st) next week two-way traffic lights will be in use on Green Lane West near the junction with the B1150 North Walsham Road. The lights will be manually controlled at peak hours.
Wroxham Road - signals
From Tuesday 2 May traffic lights will be in use on Wroxham Road for up to two weeks to allow Anglian Water to carry out service diversions. The lights will be manually controlled to minimise delays.
