Suffolk Highways – Upcoming Overnight Work

Suffolk Highways is planning to carry out overnight road resurfacing works on the A142 Fordham Road, Exning across the A14 flyover bridge in the period between the 18 and 23 May 2020, during the hours of 8pm and 5am. They estimate that the works will take approximately 2 nights to complete. This will require a temporary road closure so that we can carry out our works safely. Traffic cones may also be placed to prevent on-street parking so our work site is unobstructed.

During the unprecedented measures we are all having to take at the moment, although Suffolk Highways have scheduled this work to take place on the date shown, circumstances may mean that the work start date may be changed.  They will do their best to update you on any changes, but as you will appreciate, their resources are focused on keeping Suffolk’s highway network safe at this most challenging time as our service is critical to ensuring safe travel for our emergency and health services, and for those carrying out essential tasks.

A plan showing the extent of the road closure and the diversion route for these works is attached to this email. When they close the road and put a diversion in place, the route needs to be accessible to vehicles of all shapes and sizes. They make the diversions as clear as possible by placing appropriate signing along the route. More information about diversion routes can be found on the webpage.

Please note: 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 Highway staff inspecting or working on the highway, for your safety and theirs, please keep your distance to allow them to do their work safely.

Suffolk Highways will not be distributing letters to householders who may be affected by our works so anything you can do to update your community would be much appreciated, for example using any websites, Twitter or Facebook accounts you may use in your role – the latest updates on works can be found on the website at Temporary road closures for Suffolk Highways roadworks and on the OneNetwork website https://one.network/
