Suffolk Highways are planning to carry out bridge maintenance work to Mutford Lock Bridge, on A1117 Bridge Road, Lowestoft. The work is programmed to take place from 27 July and will continue for 5 nights, working between 8pm and 6am each night. A temporary overnight road closure will be required from Saltwater Way to Commodore Road roundabout during this time, to ensure the safety of their team and the travelling public.
The work will involve maintenance painting to sections of the bridge deck where the existing paint system has failed.
For the duration of the road closure, traffic will be diverted via, Victoria Road, Waveney Drive, A12, A47, Peto Way, Normanston Drive and vice versa.
If we need to make major changes to our work dates, due to bad weather or other delays beyond our control, Suffolk Highways will update the information signs on site.
A plan showing the diversion route for these works is available on their website. When they close the road and put a diversion in place, the route needs to be accessible to vehicles of all shapes and sizes. Suffolk Highways make their diversions as clear as possible by placing appropriate signing along the route. The latest updates on our works can be found on their website at"Temporary road closures for Suffolk Highways roadworks” and on One.Network website.
There may be times that essential emergency works are required to take place on the highway network without advanced notice – you can follow Suffolk Highways on Twitter for the latest emergency roadwork updates.
