On Monday, temporary traffic lights will be in place on the A1214 Main Road outside Kesgrave High School between 9.30am and 3.30pm, with work planned for up to four days.

Then for three days from Wednesday, temporary lights will be in place at various parts of Ropes Drive for work on street lights, which will also take place between 9.30am and 3.30pm.

A Suffolk County Council highways spokesman said the work times were planned to reduce disruption at peak times, and confirmed that the lights would not be in use while teams were not working on the site.

The work has been planned to coincide with the school half term holiday.

In November, work on the Ropes Drive east roundabout caused delays of up to 90 minutes for motorists.
