A busy road in Norwich has reopened ahead of schedule after a sewer collapse saw it closed.
Kett's Hill was closed on Friday after the sewer collapsed, requiring emergency Anglian Water work.
Diversions were put in place, buses rerouted and it was estimated that the road would remain closed until Friday, October 19.
The road was closed at the roundabout at the bottom of the road right up to the Heartsease roundabout at the top of Plumstead Road.
But Anglian Water confirmed on Monday morning that the work to clear the sewer before rebuilding the collapsed section had been completed and the road had reopened.
