a. We'll have a twenty-minute delay to repair the bus.
b. There will be a twenty-minute delay to repair the bus.

c. We'll have a twenty-minute delay in order to repair the bus.
d. There will be a twenty-minute delay in order to repair the bus.


Are the above sentences grammatically correct?
Are they natural?

The idea is that repairing the bus will take twenty minutes and therefore we'll be delayed by twenty minutes.

Many thanks.
