A major surface water clearance pipe fractured under Bracon Road causing a dangerous dip to appear in the road surface.

It was reported to Norfolk County Council on Monday, August 22 afternoon by the chairman of the parish council.

The damaged in the road was spotted by a resident over the weekend.

An inspection by the county council's highways department resulted in a total road closure being put in place from August 17 for approximately 14 days.

Works involved a major excavations and pipe replacement, which affected the section of Bracon Road from Moorland Way to Selwyn Drive. All traffic in the village was forced to use Station Road North and South to get from one side to the other. Bus services had been diverted along Waveney Drive, part of Station Road North, part of Bracon Road and back along New Road to cover that part of the village only.
