Wroxham Road and Salhouse Road closures

NDR Traffic Update no 44 – Wroxham Road traffic lights, Salhouse Road closure

A1151 Wroxham Road

Drivers are warned to expect delays on the A1151 Wroxham Road, with temporary signals at the site of the new Green Lane West junction tomorrow (Thurs) and Friday, and a longer stretch under 24-hour traffic lights from Tuesday (2 May).

Tomorrow (27 April) and Friday the traffic lights will be in use after the morning peak, and will be removed as early as possible in the evening. The road will be clear of signals through the bank holiday weekend.

From Tuesday (2 May) for up to two weeks, a long stretch of the A1151 close to the main NDR construction site will be reduced to one lane controlled by traffic lights. This is to allow Anglian Water to complete the diversion of a water main. The active work sites will be at either end of the coned-off carriageway, but too close to run two sets of temporary lights efficiently.

Salhouse Road closure

Temporary traffic lights will remain in use on Salhouse Road at the NDR roundabout construction site until the road is closed for up to two weeks from Monday 8 May to allow completion of the roundabout and tie-in to the existing carriageway.

Broads Authority Open Morning, 13th May

Agenda for 24th April


Police cadets

Broadland Police are now recruiting Police Cadets. Young people who join our police cadet scheme will get the chance to develop skills that will assist them in the job market. Cadets will be recruited between the ages of 13 to 16 years but can remain a cadet until their 18th
birthday. The scheme welcomes young people of all abilities and if a recruit has special
requirements this will be accommodated wherever possible. Cadets assist with leaflet drops, crime prevention initiatives, community safety events and street surveys. Cadets will also get an insight into how to deal with a road traffic collision, first aid, officer safety and conflict management. As cadets they also have the opportunity to visit different departments in the police service, such as Air Support, Dog Section, Firearms Unit, Roads Policing and CSI.
Cadet meetings will take place on a weekly basis during term time on a Thursday evening between 6.30pm and 8.30pm at a venue to be confirmed in Broadland. We provide a uniform to cadets who only need to supply their own black boots. Please contact Broadland Engagement Officer PC Andy Mason at Sprowston on 101 or e-mail
masonad@norfolk.pnn.police.uk if you would like to apply or find out more.

Plumstead Road closure

Plumstead Road will be closed between Thorpe End and Little Plumstead from 8pm tomorrow (Saturday 8 April) for the lifting of the main beams on to the A1270 Northern Distributor Road bridge over the Norwich to Sheringham railway at Rackheath.

The 1,000 tonne crane has arrived on site and the forecast is for winds speeds to be within the limits for lifting the five braced pairs of 36.7-metre beams, each pair weighing 80 tonnes. Lifting is expected to start in the early hours of Sunday morning and if all goes well could be complete well before the 10pm completion target.

The road will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so after the beam lifts and associated works have been completed, but no later than 6am on Monday 10 April. If good progress is made, this could be during the day on Sunday 9 April.
