A main road through a Norfolk Broads village will see temporary traffic lights in place for the next three months. 

Norwich Road in Wroxham has multi-way signals at its junction with Church Lane to allow Cadent to carry out gas works in the area. 

A diversion route follows Castle Street and Norwich Road and will allow access to Plattens Court and Park Road.

The lights were set up last week and are expected to remain in place until January 10. 

Drivers have reported long delays heading in and out of the town which comes after traffic was diverted through Wroxham due to a road closure in Coltishall.

A Cadent spokesman said: "Our engineers will be installing around 240 metres of new gas pipes, starting from the junction of The Avenue and then heading south along Norwich Road.

"This work is being done to ensure a safe, reliable supply of gas to heat thousands of local homes, both now and into the future with greener energy.  

"While we have not closed the road, there will be traffic management in place and we would ask residents, where possible, to leave a little extra time for their journeys as there is the chance of slight delays.

"We thank everyone for their patience as our engineers carry out this project as safely and as quickly as possible."
