Lord Nelson Drive, Costessey, will close on Monday, November 5 to find out the cause of the subsidence. A temporary road closure will be in place on a section of the road West of Bawburgh Lane.

It is not known how long the road will be closed for but a full investigation and repair work will be carried out.

Access to properties on the road will be available throughout the duration of the works with a pedestrian route across the road.

Diversions will be put in place and bus operators have been made aware of the closure.
