For your information, we are planning to carry out guardrail replacement works along the footpath on Freshwater Way, Lowestoft (from outside the Wherry Hotel for 100meters north eastbound - underneath the bridge) between the 10th and 28th February 2020. 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 / footpath 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.
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 - Twitter<https://twitter.com/Suff_highways>.
