Following roadworks, the junction of Hamburg Way with Edward Benefer Way in Lynn has reopened, with new traffic lights to help emerging traffic and provide controlled crossing points for pedestrians and cyclists.

Spenser Road has also been reopened at its junction with Hamburg Way, allowing access to the Grange estate and local convenience store.

This completes works at the north end of the new road. Construction continues on the new route southward from Spenser Road toward Lynnsport.

Construction has been coordinated with planned resurfacing work on Edward Benefer Way, to avoid any unnecessary reworking.

The works, being built by Norfolk County Council’s highway contractor Tarmac, are part of the West Norfolk Council’s scheme to provide a new access road to Lynnsport from the north, which is due to be open in November.

n Work will begin on Wednesday to complete surface treatment works previously started on A1078 Edward Benefer Way, northwards from the junction with Estuary Road through to Bergen Way.

During the carriageway treatment works traffic will be controlled by temporary traffic signals and lane closures.
