Roadworks began on the Norwich Southern Bypass between Postwick and Trowse on Tuesday, May 4.

A combination of rush hour traffic and the works, which are due to be in place until August 7, 2021, are causing 'severe' delays from Postwick back to the Harford Bridge junction.

According to the AA Traffic Map, parts of the A47 are at a standstill with delays of 15 minutes or more expected.

Drivers are being advised to give themselves extra time to complete their journeys, or avoid the area if possible.
