ROADS-01-Road-Closed-accident-

One of the major routes into Cromer is set to shut for up to four days next month while a gas connection is made to a flat.

A 40m section of the A148 on West Street will be blocked from March 14 while National Grid contractors make the connection.

Traffic from Cromer will be diverted in a loop along Prince of Wales Road, the A149 coast road and Beach Road to re-join the A148.

Traffic from the Holt direction will use the same diversion loop to enter Cromer.

A National Grid spokesman said the closure was needed so that a gas connection could be made to a single flat in 28 West Street. The gas mains was under the road.

She hoped the work would be completed within a maximum of three days.

But contractors' signs warn that the closure will be in place for four days.
