Norwich traffic lights broken

Drivers have been warned temporary traffic lights will be in place on a Norwich road for about a week, after the permanent lights broke down.

The lights, at the junction of Heigham Street and Old Palace Road, failed yesterday (Tuesday).

Council bosses today established they were beyond repair and a replacement controller is due to arrive early next week, so the permanent lights should be fixed by the middle of next week.

Traffic marshals were used at the junction last night and this morning and the temporary lights were installed this afternoon.
