Temporary road closures for Suffolk Highways roadworks

List of temporary road closures and planned diversions for roadworks carried out by Suffolk Highways.

Read our pages below for more information:

Highway Improvement Schemes

We plan roadworks in advance and to allow for bad weather or other delays, the dates shown cover the range of days we are scheduled to be on site (with a few extra days planned in just in case). If we need to make major changes to the dates of works, we will update the information signs on site.

There may be times that essential emergency works are required to take place on the network that is not listed below. You can follow us on Twitter for the latest emergency roadwork updates.

As well as Suffolk Highways, there are numerous other people and organisations (particularly providers of gas, electricity, water, sewerage disposal and telephone-related services) who carry out work on roads, pavements and bridges in Suffolk.

They complete work on roads and pavements to maintain and improve the utilities required for households and businesses in Suffolk.
