Work will begin on Monday 4 March to carry out road resurfacing on High Street, Whissonsett at the junctions with Dereham Road and London Street. The work will take three days to complete subject to suitable weather conditions.

During the resurfacing of each junction it will be necessary to close the High Street to all through traffic.

Fully signed official local diversion routes will be in place during the surfacing works.

Vehicle access to businesses and properties within the limits of the works will be maintained from one end of the closure at any time.

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 £96,000 will be carried out by Norfolk County Council’s Community & Environmental Services Department and their contractors.

Funding for this scheme is from the extra £12.694m Norfolk County Council has received from the Government to spend on road maintenance in 2018/19. This money is Norfolk’s share of the £420m made available to local authorities in England,that was announced in the Budget on 29 October 2018.
