SAFETY measures for a Stowmarket road come into operation tomorrow.

A new signal-controlled junction becomes operational as part of a new £700,000 scheme

of improvements to the junction of the A1120 Cedars Link and A1308/B1113 Needham Road which is nearing completion.

The new junction will improve safety for all road users, particularly for pedestrians and cyclists crossing the A1120 Cedars Link dual carriageway.

The project has been largely funded by local company, TDG plc, as the junction incorporates a new access road to its recently enlarged distribution centre on the industrial estate off the old Needham Road.

Engineering contractors J. Breheny began the work in September and look to complete the whole scheme by the spring.

The new access road is solely for access to the TDG site and there will be no connection to ICI, PPG or any other businesses.

Suffolk County Council apologises for any inconvenience that has been caused by the work and is grateful for the patience shown by local people.
