One of the busiest roads in Aylsham is expected to remain closed for another month while work continues on the town's new filling station.

Norfolk County Council this week confirmed 'work is progressing well' at the crossroads of the A140 Burgh Road junction, with the new roundabout now in place.

The temporary traffic lights which had held up motorists have now been removed and Burgh Road (east) has reopened.

But Burgh Road (west) is expected to remain shut until May 26 to allow for the construction of the new BP Garage.
