Suffolk County Council (SCC) - Upcoming Works - C562 Station Hill, Thurston  - 1 May 2020 - 9.30aam to 3.30pm 

For your information, SCC are planning to carry out vegetation works to a large oak tree on Station Hill, Thurston on the 1 May 2020, between the hours of 9.30am and 3.30pm  This will require a temporary road closure (from Wheatfields to Laurel Close) so that they can carry out our works safely. Traffic cones may also be placed to prevent on-street parking so their work site is unobstructed.

During the unprecedented measures we 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 our 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 their emergency and health services, and for those carrying out essential tasks.

A plan showing the diversion route for these works can be downloadd 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. We make our diversions as clear as possible by placing appropriate signing along the route. More information about diversion routes can be found on SCC's "Temporary road closures for Suffolk Highways roadworks” webpage.

Please note: SCC 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.

SCC will not be distributing letters to householders who may be affected by their works.
