For your information, we are planning to carry out overnight road resurfacing works on Foxhall Road, Rushmere St Andrew / Kesgrave from the descent into the dip before Nuffield Hospital (o/s No.827) to just past the Bell Lane / Monument Farm Lane Crossroads. The works are due to be carried out in the period between the 22 and 27 June 2020during the hours of 7pm and 5am. We estimate that the works will take approximately 5 nights to complete. This will require a temporary road closure (from Broadlands Way to Dobbs Lane) 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 we plan roadworks in advance, we schedule extra nights to allow for bad weather or other delays beyond our control. If we need to make major changes to our work dates, we will update the information signs on site.
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 to this email. 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” 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.
