Here are just some to watch out for when driving around the county this week.

The Lord Mayor's Procession in Norwich will see roads closed across the city in order to make way for the parade on Saturday, July 2. 

The procession will travel from the car park of Marsh Insurance to Norwich Cathedral with White Lion Street, Castle Meadow and Tombland among the roads which will be closed.

Delays are also to be expected in the Easton area as the Royal Norfolk Show takes place on Wednesday, June 29, and Thursday, June 30.  

Work to refresh part of the A11 between Attleborough and the Thickthorn Roundabout will also continue this week, with the speed limit reduced to 40mph and lane closures on the stretch of road.
