Roadworks are taking place at three sites in Lynn this week and drivers are also being warned of delays during repairs to the A17 this weekend.

Surface treatment works are due to start tonight at the junction of Edward Benefer Way and Estuary Road.

Three nights of works are then scheduled to begin on Hardwick Road, between Hansa Road and the Hardwick roundabout, on Wednesday.

Repairs are then set to be made to Nar Ouse Way, between the Southgates and Saddlebow roundabouts, between Friday and next Wednesday, July 20.

A Norfolk County Council spokesman said: “The process will extend the life of the existing asphalt surface and will defer the need to use the normal surface dressing process for a few years.

“The works will take eight nights to complete subject to suitable weather conditions.”

Lane closures and temporary traffic lights will be in place during the works.

Work is also scheduled to begin today on a footpath resurfacing project in New Sporle Road, Swaffham.

The project is expected to take around two weeks to complete. Temporary traffic lights will be in place during that period.

Meanwhile, the county council has also announced resurfacing work will take place on the A17 near Clenchwarton this weekend.

The work had been due to take place last month, but was postponed because of forecast poor weather.

However, the project, which will cover the section between the junctions with Station Road, Terrington St Clement and Station Road, Clenchwarton, has now been rescheduled for this Saturday and Sunday, July 16 and 17.

The work will take place between 5am and noon each day. Officials say long delays are likely.
