Glencoe Road, in Rushmere, has fallen into a poor state, with severe ruts appearing in places.

Councillors and residents demanded Ipswich Borough Council take action to improve the surface - and their calls have been heeded.

A spokesman for the borough council confirmed: “We are planning to resurface the road. This will take place in March or April next year.”

“It's not a busy road but there are a number of cars parked along here. And it could be very dangerous for someone on a bike.
