Feltwell Lodge Road closures and temporary traffic control to allow essesntial maintenance

Information about road closures and temporary traffic control on the B1112 Lodge Road Feltwell has been released by Norfolk County Council.

Work started yesterday to surface dress a section of the Lodge Road in Feltwell.

To allow the work to be carried out safely and swiftly it will be necessary to close the road to through traffic on a number of dates when the surfacing is underway, line painting is being carried out, and cat’s eyes, or road studs, are being renewed.

Access to properties will be maintained at all times and the work, which is weather dependant, will be carried out in phases with any road closures only in place for a number of hours at a time on the following dates:

Monday, June 12: surface dressing under traffic signals 9am-4pm

Friday, June 23: road marking and stud replacement evening and overnight works 7pm-6am.

A fully signed diversion route will be in operation for the duration of the works.

The work which will cost £20,000 will be carried out by Norfolk County Council’s Community and Environmental Services Department and their contractors Tarmac and Keir Highway Services.

The County Council thanks people for their patience while this essential road maintenance work is carried out

This year 280 miles of Norfolk’s roads will get a new seal to extend the life of the road.

The new seal consists of a thin layer of bitumen and chippings which is laid onto the road. This helps prevent water penetration and helps stop potholes opening up.

The action of vehicles passing over the new surface plays an important part in helping the new surface to settle in.

People are urged to drive slowly and considerately across the new surface until it is bedded in and highway teams return a few days later to sweep up the loose stones.
