Drivers have been warned of extra congestion in Lynn as work to repair a road damaged by the recent tidal surge continues.

The town’s South Quay remains closed to traffic this evening, Tuesday December 17, as it has been all day, as engineers repair a depression in the road at the corner of King’s Staithe Square.

County highways officers have said the route will remain shut until at least tomorrow morning, when a further update is expected to be issued.

Earlier in the day, the authority confirmed it was suspected the damage had been caused by the waves which battered the West Norfolk coast almost two weeks ago.

A spokesman said: “We are carrying out the work immediately due to concerns that the depression could compromise the effectiveness of the nearby flood gate.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused by these essential works.”

The closure means motorists cannot drive beyond the Boal Quay car park, though the car park itself remains open as normal.
