A life-ex­pired bridge near Nor­wich will fi­nally be re­placed - a year later than planned.

The struc­ture, which car­ries the Nor­wich-Great Yar­mouth/ Low­est­oft line over Oaks

Lane at Post­wick, should have been re­placed last Fe­bru­ary. How­ever, the work was pre­vented by storms and post­poned un­til De­cem­ber.

Net­work Rail will build the new struc­ture near the site be­fore mov­ing it into place over the Christ­mas pe­riod. Work be­gan on Novem­ber 16, and should fin­ish on Jan­uary 21, with trains un­able to run on De­cem­ber 27-29.

The new struc­ture will en­able the re­moval of tem­po­rary speed restric­tions.
