UPDATE: King’s Lynn road open again

Saturday Market Place was closed for repairs

The Saturday Market Place in King's Lynn is open to traffic again after work to correct a small amount of subsidence.

Traffic was diverted late yesterday afternoon while highways staff investigated the appearance of a small depression in the road.

But remedial work was carried out today and the road has now re-opened.

The Saturday Market Place is a major route to exit the town, and all traffic was diverted along the quay, round the Tuesday Market Place and St Nicholas Street before joining Railway Road at North End and then onto London Road.

A spokesman for Norfolk County Council said it was not known what caused the road to sink - but it was a relatively small amount of subsidence.

Traffic heading into the town was less affected as the short stretch of road in front of St Margaret's Church road is predominantly used by people leaving from car parks including Baker Lane and the Tuesday Market Place.
