Motorists have been warned to expect traffic delays in parts of Dereham this week because of roadworks affecting some of the town’s busiest thoroughfares.

Resurfacing of the Station Road/London Road mini-roundabout started yesterday, and work in London Road itself started today, Monday August 13.

The roads will be closed and diversions put in place while the job, which is expected to last between three and five days, is being done.

From Sunday August 19 workmen will resurface the Commercial Road/London Road mini-roundabout in Dereham, and the road will be closed.

The one-way restriction between the Cowper Road/Norwich Street junction and the car park will be suspended while work is being done. Traffic will be controlled at the junction and the car park entrance by stop-and-go boards.
