Further to the cancellation of the bridge reconstruction last year, the works have been rescheduled to begin during the second half of this week and will continue until 7 June 2019. We would like to apologise for the short notification of these works.
To facilitate the reconstruction, the traffic management will be phased. The road at the site will be reduced to a single lane and controlled by temporary traffic signals for the majority of the work. However, road closures for certain operations will be in place on the following dates;
B1116 Harleston Hill, between New Street/Stradbroke Road Junction to Mill Lane
20:00 Thursday 4th April to 06:00 Friday 5th April
20:00 Friday 10th May to 06:00 Monday 13th May
For the duration of these closures, vehicles will be diverted via B1116 Harleston Hill/Laxfield Road, B1117 Laxfield Road, B1118 Queen Street, Chickering Road, Lower Oakley, A140, A143 Bungay Road, Wells Lane and vice versa.
Vehicular access to and from your property will be maintained at all times.
Please note that pedestrian access through the site,(while the traffic is controlled by signals) will be maintained during working hours only (07:30 - 17:00) as pedestrians will need to be escorted through the site to ensure safe passage.
There will be no pedestrian access through the site during the road closures, outside of working hours and weekends.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
