Suffolk County Council are planning to install two new zebra crossing points, along with some footway works and road resurfacing along C559 Norton Road, Thurston (from Ixworth Road junction to Pakenham Road junction). The works will be carried out in 3 phases, as detailed below. The road will be closed for the duration to ensure that they can carry out their works safely.

When Suffolk County Council close the road and put a diversion in place, the route needs to be accessible to vehicles of all shapes and sizes. They aim to make their diversions as clear as possible by placing appropriate signing along the route. The latest updates on their works can be found on their website at "Temporary road closures for Suffolk Highways roadworks” and on One.Network website.
For the duration of the road closure, traffic will be diverted via Norton Road, Ixworth Road, Thurston Road, Upper Town, The Street, Fen Road, Bull Road, A1088, Road From A1088 To Thurston, Great Green, Norton Road and vice versa.
As they plan roadworks in advance, they schedule extra days to allow for bad weather or other delays beyond our control. If they need to make major changes to their work dates, they will update the information signs on site.
