NDR Traffic Update No 70 – Green Lane West, Rackheath, closed Saturday

17 November 2017

Green Lane West, Rackheath, will be closed again on Saturday, 18 November, to complete the tie-in and surfacing of the short section of new road linking the lane to the new junction with the A1151 Wroxham Road.

The closure from 6am on Saturday until 6am on Sunday (19 November) means that there will be no access to most of Green Lane West from Wroxham Road. The only exception will be properties on the short stretch between Wroxham Road and the point where the new link road is being tied in to Green Lane West. Access from Wroxham Road will be retained for these properties only.

Other traffic will not be able to get through and must divert towards Norwich on the A1151 Wroxham Road and go via Norwich Ring Road and Salhouse Road, joining Green Lane West at the Sole & Heel roundabout, Rackheath. This includes HGVs, which will be allowed through the weight restriction in Rackheath to reach the industrial estate.

When Green Lane West reopens on Sunday morning the new link road and junction with Wroxham Road should be substantially complete, allowing the removal of temporary traffic lights that have been in place for some time.
