Norwich’s Finkelgate partially re-opened almost a year after it closed
A Norwich road which has been closed since last Christmas Eve has partially re-opened.
Finkelgate was closed when huge cracks appeared in the walls of one of the terraced houses.
Four homes were evacuated and, the following day, signs of subsidence were spotted in the road.
The street which connects Queens Road with Ber Street, partially re-opened this morning (Friday), with traffic able to enter from Ber Street and leave at Queens Road.
No entry signs are still in place stopping traffic from entering Finkelgate from Queens Road.

The long-running deadlock over the street was broken last month after London-based loss adjustor Crawford & Company announced an agreement had been reached that the house where the cracks were first spotted should be demolished.
That meant Norwich City Council, which has responsibility for the road, could get the road re-opened.
