Three-week closure of town centre street

Motorists have been warned to expect disruption when an Aylsham town centre road is closed for up to three weeks to allow a new footpath to be installed.

Penfold Street will be shut between the Pump and Market Place from June 1 to allow the new path to be built.

A spokesperson for Norfolk County Council, which is carrying out the work, said: “The need for the footway is for safety aspects.

“Currently pedestrians are having to walk along the carriageway, therefore a footway would provide a safer way of travelling down the road for pedestrians.”

The spokesperson added that the budget for the scheme was £26,000 and the works were planned to run from June 1-21.

The county council said the diversion route for motorists would be Norwich Road, Henry Page Road and Cawston Road.

A spokesperson for Aylsham Town Council urged residents to be patient and considerate and follow the signposted diversion route.

    Will it make road single file, think might need traffic lights if so as there is little room to pass now
