Work to install a new pedestrian crossing on the A149 in Hunstanton is set to start next Monday, September 23.

County transport officials say the project on Cromer Road, which also includes road resurfacing, is expected to take up to five weeks to complete.

It will also include two periods when the route is closed to traffic.

More than £100,000 is being spent on the work, which is being funded by Bennett Homes as part of their new housing development in the area.

A further £150,000 is also being invested in resurfacing work, which had been scheduled for next year but has now been brought forward.

A county council spokesman said: "The works will see pedestrian and cycle safety improvements which include the construction of a crossing point, realignment of the existing pedestrian and cycle path, construction of a small section of pedestrian and cycle path which will tie in to the developer’s works in due course, street lighting amendments, the extension to the 30mph limit and carriageway resurfacing for the purposes of the crossing.

"Then the final step will see the routine maintenance of the road surface south along Cromer Road."

Most of the work will be carried out using temporary traffic lights to direct the traffic.

However, officials say the road is currently expected to be closed to traffic from 7am on Monday, September 23, until 7pm the next day.

Further closures are scheduled for October 19 and 20, between 7am and 7pm each day, and then from 9am until 5pm each day until October 27.

The spokesman added: "Every effort has been considered to minimise the impact on residents, local businesses and highway users so we have worked closely with the town council to identify the least disruptive time for the works to take place."

Anyone with specific access needs is asked to contact engineer Tony Stepney on 0344 800 8020 to discuss them. Officials say requests will be accommodated where it is practical to do so.
