Suffolk Highways are planning to carry out overnight road resurfacing works along A1117 Bridge Road, A146 Beccles Road and B1531 Victoria Road, Lowestoft in the period between the 20 and 23 May 2020, during the hours of 8pm and 5am. This will require a temporary road closure so that works can be carried out safely. Traffic cones may also be placed to prevent on-street parking so the work site is unobstructed.
As roadworks are planned in advance, extra days are scheduled to allow for bad weather or other delays. On-site work signs will be updated if major changes are required to work dates.
During the unprecedented measures we are all having to take at the moment, although this work has been scheduled to take place on the date shown, circumstances may mean that the work start date may be changed. Suffolk Highways will do their best to update you on any changes, but as you will appreciate, resources are focused on keeping Suffolk’s highway network safe at this most challenging time as this is critical to ensuring safe travel for our emergency and health services, and for those carrying out essential tasks.
A plan showing the diversion route for these works is shown below. When the road is closed and put a diversion in place, the route needs to be accessible to vehicles of all shapes and sizes. Diversions are made as clear as possible by placing appropriate signing along the route. More information about diversion routes can be found on Suffolk Highways' webpage.
Please note: Suffolk Highways' staff follow a range of health and safety measures, including the two-metre social distancing rule and cleaning down equipment more frequently and regularly. If you see any staff inspecting or working on the highway, for your safety and theirs, please keep your distance to allow them to do their work safely.
Letters will not be distributed to householders who may be affected by works, so anything you can do to update your community would be much appreciated.
