A city centre street is reopening after a water main burst, calming fears of a weekend-long closure.

Edward Street, near Anglia Square, was shut yesterday after engineers were called to investigate the leak just after 3pm.

While Anglian Water had finished the repair work by Saturday morning a spokesman for the company said the road would not reopen fully until it had been resurfaced.

It was possible the work would not have been completed until Monday – but a diligent road maintenance crew was on the scene on Saturday morning and by 10am the road was being cleared of signs and cones, ready to be reopened.

While the road was closed Konect services were disrupted around the Anglia Square area, inbound to Norwich city centre.

A spokesperson from Konectbus said: 'We're fortunate that the disruption has come in between Christmas and New Year.
