The ongoing roadworks at Fullers Hill are putting pressure on other routes in and out of the town, both of which are also feeling the strain following an earlier accident in Caister and a set of temporary traffic lights on the Acle Straight.

The crash in Caister saw a car flip on to its roof this morning just after 8am.

Fire crews were called to use hydraulic lifting equipment to free two people who were trapped inside.

The air ambulance was also called.

On the A47 Acle Straight a set of temporary traffic lights have been installed about a mile from the Vauxhall roundabout. Traffic is queuing on both sides of the carriageway on the approach to the signals.

This has put pressure on all other major routes in the town, with traffic queuing over the Breydon Bridge, at Gapton Hall and the Harfreys roundabout.

There is also slow traffic on Lawn avenue approaching the Fullers Hill roadworks.
