Drivers are being advised to avoid coming into the city via Bracondale between the County Hall roundabout and King Street over the weekend due to emergency repairs.

Damage was discovered around a manhole cover near the bus stop on the city-bound side of the road around 2.30pm today, and barriers have been erected.

The area is passable by traffic, but Norwich City Council are warning drivers to avoid the affected section of Bracondale if at all possible.

Motorists are advised to use alternate routes which the responsible utility owner is located, and repairs can be undertaken.

It is not clear at this stage when the section of road will be re-opened, as repairs are not the responsibility of the city council.
