MOTORISTS in Sudbury could be forgiven for feeling confused this week.

Eagle-eyed drivers approaching the roundabout in Northern Road, near McDonald’s, might have thought it somewhat odd that signs would warn of roadworks in “Springfields Way and Waldringfield Road”, given that one does not exist in Suffolk and one is 30 miles away.

The sloppy spelling should have referred to intended Anglian Water road repairs in Springlands Way and Waldingfield Road between Monday and Wednesday.

An Anglian Water spokeswoman said: “The sub-contracted company that makes our signs has apologised for any inconvenience caused by the incorrect spelling and put notices up in local shops.”

The work has been postponed and will be carried out today.
