Major diversions in town this weekend

Road WorksEssential overnight resurfacing work on Railway Road in King’s Lynn, from Blackfriars Street to Wellesley Street, will start at 8pm on Friday 10 April.

The work is part of Norfolk County Council’s surfacing programme but to reduce overall disruption it is being tied in with current works in and around the bus station as part of the King’s Lynn Transport Interchange project.

Road closures will be used on five nights at the following times:

Friday 10 April and Saturday 11 April, 8pm to around 2.30am.

Monday 13 April, Tuesday 14 April and Wednesday 15 April, 8pm to around midnight.

Although closing the road will mean major overnight diversions for drivers, it will reduce the time on site and avoid impact on daytime traffic. Signs will direct drivers around the closure and to reach side roads affected, including Waterloo Street, Portland Street, Wellesley Road, Norfolk Street, Old Sunway, Albion Street and Old Market Street.

On the evenings Railway Road is closed no buses will use the bus station or Portland Street after 8pm. Instead, all buses will drop off and pick up at the layby outside the railway station on Blackfriars Road. Arrival and departure times are likely to be a few minutes later than normal.
