Motorists have been warned to expect to delays as £10,000 work to improve drainage and prevent flooding in a town centre gets underway.
Installation of a new drainage gully and pipework in Ollands Road, Attleborough begins today (Monday, January 8) and is scheduled to last for a week.
A Norfolk County Council statement said: 'This improvement is to help alleviate the flooding issues experienced in the area.
'We will do our best to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum and your co-operation would therefore be greatly appreciated as works progress.
'The council thanks people for their patience while this drainage improvement work is carried out.'
