Suffolk Highways - Upcoming Works - C691.Barton Road, Thurston and Thurston Road, Great Barton - 26 -29 May 

Suffolk Highways are planning to carry out carriageway patching works on Barton Road, Thurston and Thurston Road, Great Barton in the period between the 26 and 29 May 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 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, we will update the information signs on site.

During the unprecedented measure they are all having to take at the moment, although they 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 their service is critical to ensuring safe travel for our emergency and health services, and for those carrying out essential tasks.

A plan showing the diversion route for these works can be downloaded by using this link.

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 their diversions as clear as possible by placing appropriate signing along the route. More information about diversion routes can be found on our” webpage.

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

They will not be distributing letters to householders who may be affected by our works sso please monitor any websites, Twitter or Facebook accounts – the latest updates on our works can be found on our website at "Temporary road closures for Suffolk Highways roadworks” and on the OneNetwork website https://one.network/
