Bus passengers are being told to expect delays due to a burst water main on the A146.

First Norfolk and Suffolk have warned passengers using the X2, X21 and X22 services to expect delays of up to an hour due to two-way traffic lights and a burst water main on the A146 near Highways Garden and Leisure centre.

Issuing a service update on its website, the company said: "Due to another burst water main outside Highways, X2/X21/X22 bus services are being delayed due to the two-way traffic lights.

Apologising to passengers for "yet more inconvenience on A146" the bus provider said it was in discussions with Norfolk County Council to make improvements to the way traffic is handled on the road ahead of tonight's rush hour.

A spokesperson for Anglian Water, said: "We have been repairing a leak on the supply to the nursery in Framingham Pigot on the A146.

"The repair to this leak has been completed and the team are currently repairing the road surface. Two way traffic lights have been put in place for this repair which we hope to have completed by the middle of this week."

The disruption is expected to last until Friday November 22.
