Part of a major road will be closed next week to allow essential roadworks to take place. 

The A140 at Dickleburgh will be closed at the Dickleburgh Road junction on February 15 and February 16 between 8pm and 6am for resurfacing work.

An official diversion route will be put in place to redirect traffic and the road will be open at all other times with an advisory speed limit in place. 

During the closures, access to homes and businesses will be maintained as much as possible and Norfolk County Council has apologised for any disruption the work may cause.

The project, which will cost £70,000, is being carried out by the county council and its contractors.
