A main road in and out of Sudbury will be closed overnight for five days next week, to allow for phased repairs.

Work will be carried out to improve the existing road surface on the A131 Melford Road, and prepare for further surface dressing later in the year.

The first phase of repairs is scheduled to take place between Monday and Wednesday, from the roundabout with A134 up to Chaucer Road.

After this, the second phase will be carried out from Chaucer Road up to York Road, from Wednesday until next Saturday.

On each of the days the work is taking place, the road will be shut overnight between 7pm and 7am the following day, with traffic being diverted via the A131 and A134 during this time period.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk Highways said: “The work has been planned overnight to ensure peak travel times are avoided.

“We aim to keep noise and disruption to a minimum, however, due to the nature of the work, some noise is unavoidable.

“For safety reasons, our vehicles are fitted with bleepers which sound when reversing.

“Access to properties and businesses will be available, but controlled by staff on site. Please speak to one of our staff who will provide access as soon as it is safe to do so.

“Access for emergency services will be maintained at all times.

“On-street parking will be restricted to allow the repairs to be carried out unobstructed.”
