For your information, we are planning to carry out essential bridge maintenance works on the A1117 Bridge Road, Lowestoft at Mutford Lock. The works are scheduled to start on 25th February 2020 and will continue for 2 nights between 8pm and 6am. 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.

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 attached to this email. 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. More information about diversion routes can be found on our "Temporary road closures for Suffolk Highways roadworks<https://www.suffolk.gov.uk/roads-and-transport/roadworks/road-closures-for-roadworks/>" webpage.
