Drainage works will start on Monday, March 20, on the A149 by Drove Orchards, between Holme and Thornham.

Norfolk County Council said the work would take three weeks.

During that time, the road will be closed between 8.30am and 3pm, Monday to Friday, but will be open at weekends.

Shuttle buses will run along the affected stretch during the works. The Lynx 36 service between Wells and Holme will make a short diversion and operate as normal.

The Coast Hopper service will not serve Titchwell and Thornham. In Holme it will serve the junction of the A149 and Peddars Way.
