A 10-week road closure is due to start today as work continues on a major city scheme. 

The road closure will be in place between the Breckland Road junction with Dereham Road and the Costessey roundabout entrance from April 2 until June 7. 

The project is part of Norfolk County Council's ongoing Transforming Cities scheme taking place along Dereham Road and at the Bowthorpe Travel Hub.

The existing bus stops on Breckland Road near the subway crossing will be temporarily suspended during the work 

A pair of temporary bus stops will be provided on Three Mile Lane near the bus gate.
