Sudbury road closure in effect until further notice for safety reasons
An emergency closure has been instituted until further notice at a road in Sudbury, after part of the road was deemed to have subsided.
Suffolk Highways confirmed on Friday afternoon that Newton Road would be shut for safety reasons, due to an undetermined area of subsidence being found in the road.
Anglian Water conducted an inspection of the site on Friday night, and works are ongoing this week to address the problem, with traffic diversions in place.
A specific date for when the works will be completed has not been given.
A spokeswoman for Suffolk Highways said: “Whilst the road closure is in place, there will be no access or egress from Chelsea Road and Ingram Wells Road, as the affected area is in the middle of the junction.
“We foresee disruption and delays during peak times. Without knowing the extent of the works required, we are unable to provide details of the duration at this time.”
As a result of the closure to Newton Road, scheduled works to repair the drainage system in East Street, which had been due to commence on Monday, have been postponed, until this road closure is removed.
