The closure will be in place all the time while the damaged parapet fences and brickwork of Spong Bridge are repaired.

The road is being closed so that work can be carried out safely on the narrow road.

A signed diversion route will be in place for B1110 Holt Road/ Dereham Road, B1145 Brisley Road/ Elmham Road/ Church Street/ Stanfield Road, B1146 Fakenham Road and vice versa.

The work, costing £4,000, will be carried out by Norfolk County Council’s community and environmental services department and their bridge contractors Tarmac.
