Closure of Postwick Junction Friday , 12th overnight

The overnight installation of protective ‘Varioguard’ barriers for the construction of the segregated left turn lane on the Postwick junction’s north-west roundabout has been brought forward from Saturday 13 August to Friday 12 August.

This is to avoid the disruption of football traffic following Norwich City’s Saturday evening match against Sheffield Wednesday (5.30pm kick-off).

From 8pm on Friday the segment of the roundabout to be widened will be closed while the barriers are installed. This will mainly affect traffic from the east leaving the A47 and heading towards Thorpe St Andrew (Yarmouth Road) and onwards to destinations including Norwich International Airport. This traffic will be diverted via the westbound A47 and the A146 Trowse Bypass.

Traffic heading in the other direction (leaving Thorpe St Andrew via Yarmouth Road, joining the eastbound A47) will not be significantly affected.

Traffic from the east heading north from the Postwick junction towards Green Lane will be able to use the new bridge and access roads to reach the Peachman Way roundabout.

Installation of the barriers is expected to take several hours and the partial closure of the roundabout will be lifted as soon as it is safe to do so, but no later than 6am on Saturday 13 August. This arm of the roundabout will then be reduced to a single lane. This is a change to the original proposals to provide more working space and reduce the overall construction period.

The new segregated left turn lane is designed to improve the flow of traffic through Postwick Junction during the morning peak, when delays in clearing through the north-west roundabout resulted in queues that occasionally tailed back through the traffic lights and the Oaks Lane roundabout. The work is being carried out during the summer holidays when there is less peak hour traffic.

Norfolk & Suffolk Devolution Consultation

105 for power cuts

On 6th September a new national phone number “105” will be launched by electricity network operators for customers to call should they need to report or get information about a power cut in their area.

 

Key points to note about this service are:

  • Dialling 105 will put customers through to their local electricity network operator – the company that manages the cables, power lines and substations that deliver electricity into homes and businesses in their area.
  • 105 is just one of the ways that customers can contact their electricity network operator. They can also contact them by phone or via their website, and most network operators are on social media too.
  • 105 is a free service for people in England, Scotland and Wales.
  • Customers can call 105 no matter who they choose to buy electricity from.
  • Customers can also call 105 if they spot damage to electricity power lines and substations that could put anyone in danger. If there’s a serious immediate risk, they should call the emergency services too.
