Virtual tour of city's new roads

Graphic showing the new work
St Augustine's is a badly congested part of the city

A virtual tour of a new £3.3m one-way system being built in Norfolk is available to view online.

Work to create a one-way flow of traffic around St Augustine's in Norwich, has already started and is due to be completed later this year.

Norfolk County Council and Norwich City Council have now posted a virtual tour the system on internet site YouTube.

But while the clip shows some buildings, certain streets have been replaced with countryside.

The one-way flow of traffic will be created using St Augustine's Street (northbound), Magpie Road, Esdelle Street, Edward Street (southbound) and a new link currently under construction, to Pitt Street.

St Augustine's will eventually be narrowed, pavements widened, and a 20mph speed limit imposed

The project has been mainly funded by the Greater Norwich Development Partnership.
