A shuttle bus service will be run when the A149 is closed for drainage improvement works at Holme, county transport officials have announced.

Work was due to start yesterday on the project, which is expected to take three weeks to complete.

A Norfolk County Council spokesman said: “This work is being carried out in response to surface water flooding issues in the area and will see a drainage system installed to reduce the likelihood of this happening again in the future.”

The road is due to be closed between 8.30am each Monday to 3pm on a Friday, but will be open as normal at weekends.

A diversion for drivers will be in place during the closure periods via the A149, the B1454 at Heacham and the B1153 at Docking.

The shuttle bus, which will be run by West Norfolk Community Transport, will run on a loop between Hunstanton and Brancaster, calling at Thornham and Titchwell along its route.

The first service will leave Titchwell at 7.37am each day, with the last journey leaving Hunstanton’s bus station at 6.10pm, returning at 6.40pm.

The council says the regular Lynx 36 service, which serves Holme, Thornham, Titchwell, Brancaster and Wells, will be diverted during the works, but will otherwise operate as normal.

However, the Coasthopper bus will not stop at Thornham and Titchwell, but will still serve Holme.
