West Norfolk village works expected to take 11 weeks
Works will begin at a West Norfolk village next week in order to reduce the chance of properties flooding and to improve pavement surfacing.
Norfolk County Council has stated works will begin on or soon after Monday (January 6) on Station Road in Little Massingham.
The overall project is expected to take 11 weeks with the road likely to be closed to all traffic for approximately three weeks from Monday, February 17.
Improvements will be made to the surface of the existing path along the section of road between the Paddocks and the former railway station.
These works will include a new kerb which will have drains added onto some sections of it.
The county council state this will help to reduce the likelihood of accesses to properties getting flooded during periods of heavy rain.
Vehicular access to properties will be maintained during the works and the council has reassured residents that disruption will be "kept to a minimum".
Residents have been asked to park cars usually on the road elsewhere for the duration of works as "this will help to reduce any disruption".
The public notice from the council added: "The county council thanks you for your patience while the path and drainage improvements are being carried out."
The work will be carried out by the county council's Community and Environmental Services Department and its contractors.
