Pedestrians and cyclists are being warned they may face disruption as work starts on building a new crossing in the Fullers Hill area of Great Yarmouth on Monday.

The project will see three sections of pavement in the area converted into shared-use pedestrian and cycle path, connected by a new toucan crossing.

A signalised pedestrian-only crossing will also be put in place across Fullers Hill, near its junction with Northgate Street.

Mick Castle, Norfolk County Councillor for Yarmouth North and Central, said: “This is a great project which is designed to make it quicker, easier and safer to travel around the Fullers Hill area on foot and by bike.”

A county council spokesperson thanked people for their patience while the work takes place and said it will try to keep any disruption to a minimum.

The project is due to finish at the beginning of April and is part of the transport for Great Yarmouth project.
