CHANGES to Great Yarmouth's town centre one-way system came into force today as work gathers pace on

CHANGES to Great Yarmouth's town centre one-way system came into force today as work gathers pace on

a £8.5m regeneration project.

As part of plans to breathe fresh life into the St George's Chapel area of the town, the one-way flow system on King Street and Dene Side has been reversed.

It will mean traffic will run southwards, away from the Market Place, along King Street and northwards towards the Market Place along Dene Side.

Two-way stretches of King Street and Dene Side between St Peters Road and Yarmouth Way are also part of the new one-way system.

Signs have already been in place for a week notifying motorists of the changes and traffic marshals will be at key junctions from today to Sunday to help drivers and pedestrians unfamiliar with the new arrangements.

Bus stops on King Street and Dene Side have also been repositioned to fit in with the new traffic flows.

Work started last month to make the St George's Chapel area more pedestrian-friendly and eventually open up the dilapidated chapel as a community resource.

All the traffic work is due for completion by Easter.
