Suffolk Highways are planning to carry out a pothole and patch repair on Bury Road, Hitcham on the 29 April 2020, between the hours of 9.30am and 3.30pm. This will require a temporary road closure (from Dale Road to Balls Hill) 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.
During the unprecedented measures we are all having to take at the moment, although we have scheduled this work to take place on the date shown, circumstances may mean that the work start date may be changed. We will do our best to update you on any changes, but as you will appreciate, our 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 our emergency and health services, and for those carrying out essential tasks.
A plan showing the diversion route for these works is attached. When we 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 our “Temporary road closures for Suffolk Highways roadworks” webpage.
Please note: our 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 our staff inspecting or working on the highway, for your safety and theirs, please keep your distance to allow them to do their work safely.
