Repairs to a footbridge have been put on hold after the council could not get the correct wood.
Work had been set to start on November 18 to Santon Downham footbridge but Norfolk County Council has been unable to get the correct replacement hardwood decking.
Until repairs are carried out it will be inspected to check the footbridge is still safe to use.
It is about 1km south east of the village of Santon Downham and goes over the River Little Ouse.
A new start date has not been confirmed.
