Work will begin on Tuesday May 7 on road improvements that were part of the deal that enabled Waitrose to develop a supermarket on the edge of North Walsham.

The works on the A149 Cromer Road will take place from the junction with Suffield Close to the junction with the new store.

They include:

Construction of two new bus stops including shelters, 2.5m wide footways and a pedestrian crossing point with pedestrian refuge

Upgrading the existing island at the Waitrose access road to create a new pedestrian crossing point

Improvements to the pedestrian crossing facilities at Suffield Close, Bradfield Road and the access to Travis Perkins

Construction of a new pedestrian crossing point on the A149 near to the junction with Greens Road

Widening the existing dropped crossing points on either side of the access road near to the store entrance and installing tactile paving to help visually impaired pedestrians

Extension of the street lighting at the location of the new bus stops and pedestrian crossing point to the northwest of the store access road to cover the new stops and crossing point

The work, which is being paid for by Waitrose, is expected to take a total of four weeks.

A Norfolk County Council spokesman said: The traffic management required for the works has been carefully considered to minimise disruption to residents, businesses and motorists in the surrounding area.

Multi-way traffic control will be used at various stages during the works and during these periods motorists may experience delays on Cromer Road, Greens Road and the Waitrose store access road.
