Woodbridge Road in Ipswich is set for five nights of closures ahead of the extension of a 20mph speed limit zone.
The new “traffic calming scheme” in the road is set to begin later this month, extending the 20mph zone between the junctions with Argyle Street and Warwick Road.
A 20’s Plenty speed limit has been enforced outside St Helen’s Primary School since 2017 after years of campaigning by local parents.
It will now come into effect at the junction with Argyle Street and be extended past Palmerston Road.
As part of the new scheme, existing road markings will be replaced while speed bumps and new signage will be introduced alongside minor footpath works.
