Little Melton Parish Council

Road Closures 2018 08

Received on 22/08 -
NORFOLK COUNTY COUNCIL has made a Temporary Traffic Order affecting the B1108 Watton Road from its junction with the A47 for a distance of 259 metres eastwards in the PARISH OF COLNEY because of surfacing works.   The road will be temporarily closed (except for access) from 10th September 2018 to 14th September 2018 between the hours of 19:00 and 06:00 for the duration of the works, expected to be 5 nights within the period.   Alternative routes are via: B1108 Watton Road/ Norwich Road/ Station Road, B1135 Wymondham Road/ Crownthorpe Road/ Chapel Lane/ Tuttles Lane West/ Tuttles Lane East, A11, A47 or A47, A11, A140, B1108 and vice versa (Wymondham, Little Melton, Colney, Great Melton, Hethersett, Cringleford, Wicklewood, Ketteringham, Kimberley, Wramplingham, Barford, Bawburgh).

Burnthouse Lane will be closed in both directions between 25/07 and 29/08.   This means that all the Business Park traffic will be coming through Little Melton!  The person dealing with enquiries at Norfolk County Council is Adam Mayo (Community and Environmental Services) Telephone 0344 800 8020

The Watton Rd will be closed in both directions between 06/08 and 24/08, this will be followed by overnight closures at the roundabout to repair the damaged surface up to the Green Lane junction.   See the map for  more details.

It is unfortunate that these two closures overlap and it is likely that they will result in problems on Braymeadow and Green Lane.   The work is being done in the school holidays when traffic levels are much reduced.  The PC has requested that the Police monitor the situation and take action if the situation becomes too dangerous - the contact details for the Hethersett Safer Neighbourhood team are here.
