Twitter to tell a day in the life of #NorfolkRoads

traffic - Jon CollierTo celebrate the work happening across the length and breadth of #NorfolkRoads Norfolk County Council, @NorfolkCC, is hosting a twitter day this Thursday, 28 April, to give a flavour of the day to day activity that goes on behind the scenes to keep people moving safely in the county.

The day will start with live tweets from Norfolk Traffic Control reporting on incidents, delays and road conditions on the 6000 mile network maintained by the County Council during the morning rush.

Twitter followers will see teams in King’s Lynn checking vehicles before they head out for the days’ work, and teams in the east of the county carrying out surface dressing, and see work underway in south Norfolk to fix potholes assisted by the velocity patching machine.

The day also sees the unveiling of one of the northern distributor road scheme boards marking the full construction phase set to get underway soon on the northern distributor road.

And with safety in mind there’ll be pictures from the cyclist training sessions taking place in Stalham, Roughton, Sheringham and Carbrooke, the Road Safety Magic Show at Fleggburgh and Freethorpe and driver training sessions in Dereham.

There will be reminders throughout the day of how to find out information about what’s happening on our roads and how to report any issues.

The county council’s @NorfolkCC account will be retweeting posts from other people and organisations during the day. Anyone wishing to follow the event can do so by using the hashtag #NorfolkRoads
