NEW: (16.10.19): Upcoming road closures that will be in place along Long Lane. These works will take place from 21/10/19 to 01/11/19. The road will be closed so JMS Contractors can install traffic calming measures and 20mph roundels along Long Lane.
The road closures will be done in 3 different sections to minimize disruption to residents.
PHASE 3 & PHASE 2 (PH3/PH2 on the attachments) will commence on the 21st October this is so there isn’t any disruption to the school buses and access to the school. This was agreed with the passenger transport and all information has been passed on to the bus contractors.
PHASE 1 (PH1) will follow on while this phase is in place access to the school for buses will be via Birchfield Lane/Birchfield Gardens and vice versa.
During this period at no point will residents be restricted access to their properties even if they are within the closure point. I will explain the layout of the attachments below so you have a better understanding of what the lines actually mean.
RED LINE: This is section where the road will be fully closed and JMS Contractors will be installing the traffic calming measures. If any residents live within this section they will have access to their properties/driveways but parking on the road outside their properties is prohibited due to safety reasons and the chance of vehicles getting damaged and the possibility of holding up the works.
YELLOW LINE: This area is where any vehicles can travel along but once they get to the closure section (red line) they will not be able to pass through.
GREEN LINE: This is the diversion route that will be signed up for vehicles wanting to get from one side of Long Lane to the other. This route has been approved by Norfolk C.C. While the diversion route is in place there will be specially worded signs telling people where they can get up to.
