Suffolk County Council are planning to carry out drainage investigations along C508 New Street, Fressingfield (from Priory Road to Harleston Hill). The works are programmed to take place from 9 August to 1 September 2021. The road will be closed between 8.30am and 5pm each day to ensure that we can carry out our works safely.

For the duration of the road closure, traffic will be diverted via New Street, Top Road, B1118, Battersea Hill, Rattlerow Hill, Stradbroke Road and vice versa.

As we plan roadworks in advance, we schedule extra days to allow for bad weather or other delays beyond our control. If we need to make major changes to our work dates, we will update the information signs on site.

A plan showing the diversion route for these works is here. When we close the road and put a diversion in place, the route needs to be accessible to vehicles of all shapes and sizes. We make our diversions as clear as possible by placing appropriate signing along the route. The latest updates on our works can be found on our 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.

Please could you use any contacts within your division or parish to circulate this notification. Please contact us on 0345 606 6171 if you have any questions.
