Four weeks of work will start soon on "the worst road" in a Norfolk town. 

Repairs are scheduled to begin on Marsh Lane in King's Lynn next month following a lengthy bid to see the road resurfaced and upgraded. 

Gaywood South councillor Rob Colwell confirmed the work was going ahead, adding that it is widely regarded as "the worst road in King's Lynn".

Posting on social media, Mr Colwell said that due to the concrete make-up of the road and shallow electricity cables, the work will take longer than usual.

Marsh Lane will be partially closed when the scheme goes ahead, currently planned to be carried out between March 25 and April 19.

Fellow Lib Dem councillor, for Gaywood North, David Sayers said it marked a "significant step" in addressing the longstanding issues of improper surfacing in the immediate area. 

Also posting on X, Mr Sayers said: "I am quietly confident I can achieve a full resurfacing.

"But I understand that there are shallow utilities which means extra planning and logistics has to go into making it a reality."
