Drivers are facing delays of up to an hour on a usually quiet Norwich road.

Due to the ongoing closure of Sweet Briar Road, surrounding routes have taken on the traffic.

Hellesdon Hall Road and Hellesdon Road are two of those roads.

At about 11.30am today (March 23), drivers were sat in traffic on the two roads for more than 45 minutes.

Traffic is mainly in the southbound lane, but there is also some northbound.

Dereham Road and Drayton High Road similarly have an increased volume of traffic due to the closure.

Until Sweet Briar Road reopens, roadworks in surrounding areas have been paused.
