Work on Travel Ipswich restarts today after a break over the festive period.
This is the final stage of the project aimed at improving traffic flow through the town.
Today work is commencing at the junction of Cauldwell Hall Road and Spring Road where signal upgrades are taking place. It is expected to last for approximately five weeks.
Also part of this last stage is signal upgrades at Hadleigh Road junction, starting on January 12 and lasting around three weeks.
During this period Hadleigh Road will be closed from the Sainsbury’s entrance to its delivery entrance.
Access to Sainsbury’s will be via the London Road/Ranelagh Road junction only and motorists will only be able to turn right into Sainsbury’s.
The diversion route will be via London Road and Dickens Road and vice versa.
