Traffic and trains were again held up after the level crossing failed at Brandon this morning.
The barrier became stuck down at 11.40am after a fuse in the control cabinet blew, according to Network Rail.
Engineers were on scene ten minutes later with the issue resolved by 12.10pm.
The fault was the latest in a string of hold-ups at the crossing since it was revamped at Christmas last year.
Motorists were delayed by the problem - including a number of bus services from Thetford - while three Norwich to Cambridge trains were delayed by 15 minutes.
A spokeswoman for Greater Anglia said it worked with Network Rail to fix the issue and apologised to customers for delays.
