Eaton slip road closure reminder
The next phase of Transport for Norwich work in Eaton gets underway tomorrow (Wednesday 25 July) with a temporary closure being put in place on the slip road into the village from Newmarket Road.
Transport improvements and essential maintenance started at the beginning of the month, with the latest phase seeing the widening of the cycle path from the Cellar House pub to Newmarket Road, allowing for two-way cycling.
Other changes taking place include simplified crossings for pedestrians as well as work to the crossroads at the centre of the village to upgrade the traffic signals, improve the junction’s efficiency and carry out resurfacing. The project is designed to improve traffic flow for all road users, marking a positive and lasting change for transport facilities in the area.
Construction has been planned to minimise disruption as much as possible, with the slip road closure taking place in the school holidays and manually controlled traffic signals used at the busiest times of day.
The closure is due to be in place until the end of August but every effort will be made to open the road as soon as possible.
First and Konectbus services will be affected during this time – details of the temporary changes and relocated bus stops are available on notices in the area and at www.norfolk.gov.uk/eatoncringleford, where you can also find general traffic management and project information.
