A bridge on one of Norfolk’s main roads is set to close overnight for essential repairs.

Maintenance work is due to take place at Shotford Bridge on the A143 Harleston bypass from 6pm on Saturday, September 12, until 9.30am on Sunday, September 13.

Work costing £25,000 to replace the bridge joints will see the A-road close between its junctions with Wells Lane and Mendham Lane.

The task, expected to take just one night, has been scheduled overnight to minimise disruption and to allow the joints to be replaced safely.

Various signposted diversion routes will be in place for the duration of the closure.

Repair work is being carried out by Norfolk County Council’s Community and Environmental Services Department and their contractors. The council has thanked drivers for their patience.
