There is traffic queueing in both directions and congestion to the Crown Street junction.

It had been previously reported that there was a level crossing failure, however the road has been closed at the level crossing while emergency repairs are being carried out to a dangerous BT cover on the Norfolk side of the crossing.

The barriers will be down until around 6-7pm while this work is carried out.
