A road near Swaffham will be closed next month as teams work to fix a bridge damaged in a crash. 

Holme Hale Bridge, which crosses the River Wissey between Necton and Holme Hale, will be closed from Monday, March 4, until Friday, March 8.

A full road closure of the Necton Road and Cook Road between the villages will also be in place while work is carried out to ensure the safety of the workers.

The repairs, which will cost £6,000, come after the bridge suffered damage in a crash.

Diversions will be in place via School Road to the south, Swaffham Road, Whitegate Road and then on to the A47 at the North Pickenham Road junction.

Traffic will then be diverted off the A47 on to Tuns Road in Necton.

The work will be carried out by Norfolk County Council’s Community and Environmental Services Department along with contractors Tarmac.
