Drivers travelling through Oulton Broad could face delays as one lane has been closed to traffic following a gas leak.

Cadent engineers have been carrying out repairs in Bridge Road near to Oulton Broad North Railway Station today, with the road expected to reopen this evening.

A temporary lane closure has been put in place in Bridge Road, with it becoming a temporary one way system, to enable the work to be carried out safely and efficiently.

Southbound traffic - heading into Oulton Broad - is currently being diverted via a signed diversion over the Bascule Bridge in accordance with local Highway Authority rules.

Cadent apologises for any disruption people may be experiencing.

It follows on from major work earlier this year to replace ageing gas mains along the same stretch of road.

The upgrade works saw the gas mains replaced between the Shell service station in Normanston Drive, passing by the railway station, to Oulton Broad library in Bridge Road.
