Urgent repair work is set to be carried out on Redhill Bridge in Carbrooke after an inspection found that a car accident caused damage to the infrastructure.

The work will mean that the bridge on Ovington Road will be closed between November 20 until December 10, with traffic management in place.

There will also be a diversion route provided.

The work will be carried out by Norfolk County Council’s Community and Environmental Services Department and their contractors.
