Trimley: Families face one more night of roadworks misery

RESIDENTS living on one of the busiest village roads in Suffolk have one more night of misery to suffer as major roadworks are carried out just yards from their homes.

Villagers in Trimley St Mary have already endured three nights of noise, smell and disruption from the project to resurface part of High Road.

“It’s been a nightmare – the vibration from the machinery has been awful,” said one resident.

“We have had ornaments jumping off cabinets and the telephone went flying on the floor.

“It’s impossible to sleep and we are all just looking forward so much to getting back to normal.”

Tonight will be the fourth night that High Road has been closed between 7pm and 6am to allow for the road repairs.

Most of the work, being carried out between Church Lane and Station Road, has been completed and a county council spokeswoman said the last part was to complete the final pieces and tidy up.
