A stretch of road in Norwich remains closed today after part of the surface lifted following heavy rain last night.

Hellesdon Road is closed between the Marl Pit Lane junction and the Hellesdon Hall Road junction because of flooding.

Norfolk Police received a call at just after 6pm yesterday to reports of flooding on Hellesdon Road which resulted in damage to the surface.

Anglian Water will be carying out repair works on the road, expected to last two to three days, and diversions will be in place in the meantime.

The spokesman said: “We know road closures are going to be disruptive and we are sorry but we do need to carry out this repair and diversions will be clearly signposted.”

The closure is expected to cause difficulties for visitors travelling to the Royal Norfolk Show, with drivers advised to take alternative routes


  • The truth is the surface was sub standard in the first place, a 20 minute rain storm shouldn't lift the tarmac off a road.

  • Have to agree with Albert, leaves are never cleared up and you never see gully suckers anymore, maybe they cant get to the drains because of parked cars.
