The 16 cones that sparked severe rush hour delays in Norwich

Drivers heading into Norwich faced very long delays this morning, with 16 cones around a bus lay-by contributing to the hold-ups.
There were delays in Bracondale, where a bus lay-by was coned off and one of the lanes heading into the city was closed off, forcing traffic into a single lane.
And that had a knock-on effect on to the A146, where traffic heading towards the city was stuck in long queues. And drivers reported that, despite the 16 cones, no work appeared to be being done in the lay-by.
But Norwich City Council tweeted to say the road had been reduced to one lane because of a collapsed utility cover.
They said UK Power Networks were aware of the issue and were working to resolve it.
And they added that drivers should “plan ahead and allow extra journey time”.
UPDATE: As of 3pm this afternoon the cones had been removed and traffic was flowing as normal.
