Broadland Northway – maintenance and safety improvement works

Works will begin on Monday 27 January 2020 to carry out repairs to the signing and kerbing on the central island of the Airport Roundabout. The roundabout will remain open at all times however lane closures will be necessary for the work to be carried out safely and swiftly.

To minimise disruption additional planting and safety barrier work will take place at the same time. The works at the Airport Roundabout are expected to be complete by Friday 31 January.

The team will then move to Wroxham Road Roundabout to carry out repair works and some safety improvements. This work will be done over two weekends – Saturday 1 & Sunday 2 February, and Saturday 8 & Sunday 9 February. The roundabout will remain open at all times however some lane closures will be necessary.

Lane closures (off peak) will also be in place over various sections of Broadland Northway between North Walsham Roundabout and Business Park Roundabout to allow other sign replacements to be carried out.

These works follow the recent repairs to the central reserve safety barrier and all the work is expected to be complete by Friday 14 February, weather permitting.

The safety improvements, including the additional planting at Airport and Wroxham Roundabouts and additional chevron signing at Wroxham and North Walsham Roundabouts are being carried out as recommended in the safety audit, published in autumn 2019.

Drivers are advised they may need to allow extra time for their journeys when the lane closures are in place. The County Council thanks people for their patience while this maintenance and safety work is carried out.

The work will be carried out by Norfolk County Council’s Community and Environmental Services Department and their contractors.

Pond at Suter Drive – update

POND at SUTER DRIVE

The pond and the surrounding area at Suter Drive is owned by Broadland District Council. The Environment Agency have carried out testing of the water following the discovery of dead fish.

It has been confirmed that the fish died as a result of white spot. The diesease was probably introduced into the pond by the addition of Goldfish or Koi by residents. Most of the dead fish have now been removed. It is likely that some of the dead fish are on the bottom of the pond but these will be left as distrubing the pond may spread the diesease. The pond was overstock fish and this has caused the diesease to spread. Maintenance work happens regularly and flows in and out of the pond are good.
