Road Closure for surfacing works in Methwold – B1160 Decoy Road / College Road – Update

 

Works were due to begin on Saturday 22 May 2021 to reconstruct and resurface sections of the B1160 Decoy Road / College Road from 860m north of the C872 Feltwell Road / B1160 Decoy Road junction to 20m south of the access to the Wissington sugar beet factory entrance.

 

The start of these works will unfortunately now be delayed due to circumstances beyond our control. We hope that they will now commence on or soon after Tuesday 1st June, the works are expected to take four weeks to complete, weather permitting.

 

While the work is underway, we will need to close this section of the B1160 Decoy Road / College Road, 24 hours a day for the duration, so we can carry out the work safely and swiftly. This means that the road will not be able to be used as a through route and that there will be no access to the C36 Broad Drove from the B1160 Decoy Road / College Road junction for four weeks. A fully signed official diversion route for the B1160 Decoy Road will be in place and access to the C36 Broad Drove will need to be made from the east (Methwold Hythe) direction.

 

We will do our best to maintain access to businesses and properties within the road closure area however due to the nature of the works and the size of the plant required for the works some delays may be unavoidable and access will need to be from one end of the closure dependant on where our plant is operating at that time. Members of the team will be on site ready to assist and advise on the best direction to obtain access.

 

We will put signs in place to let people know that businesses are open as usual and we will tell emergency services and bus companies about the closures, so that they can plan for their vehicles. We have planned this work, so it does not clash with the sugar beet campaign in order to minimise disruption on this key route.

 

The County Council thanks everyone for their patience while this essential resurfacing work is carried out.

 

The work which is expected to cost approximately £800,000 will be carried out by Norfolk County Council’s Community and Environmental Services Department and their contractors.
