Norfolk County Council said the drainage work was necessary to tackle flooding issues which occur during heavy rainfall.

The £70,000 works will involve constructing a new surface water carrier drain along Plumstead Road from Broadland Way towards the shopping area.

During the closure a temporary bus stop will be placed near to the junction of Green Lane, and a shuttle bus service will be provided from the village centre to the temporary bus stop.

Information about the shuttle bus information will be available on the Konectbus website.
