More than a year and a half of roadworks on the A11 is set to begin from Monday.

From Monday, September 27, the works will take place from Attleborough to Hethersett and Wymondham.

The works are to resurface the carriageway, carry out repairs, as well as renewing the road markings and studs, kerb replacement, drainage works, and general maintenance.

The works will last approximately 18 months, and the majority will take place overnight, from 8pm to 6am. 

There may also be some weekend closures, from 8pm Friday to 6am Monday.
