Suffolk Highways are planning to carry out surface dressing preparation works on Barton Road, Thurston and Thurston Road, Great Barton in the period between the 13th and 17th January 2020, during the hours of 9.30am and 3pm. This will require a temporary road closure 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.
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.
Suffolk Highways have stated that when they close the road and put a diversion in place, the routes are planned so that they are 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 "Temporary road closures for Suffolk Highways roadworks” webpage.
There may also 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.
