Temporary traffic lights which have been set up in Great Yarmouth will remain in place for more than a week as Anglian Water carry out "vital" repair work to a damaged sewer.
Engineers began work on the sewer outside the pumping station in South Quay on Thursday, May 23.
Repairs were expected to last for six weeks but a spokesman for Anglian Water said work was ahead of schedule.
Engineers hope to have fixed the sewer by Wednesday, June 19.
Temporary traffic lights will remain in place on the road until then.
Speaking before the work started a spokesman for Anglian Water said: "We are sorry for any disturbance to local residents, but this work is vital to ensure they can continue to flush their toilets and use their washing machines as normal.
