Overnight roadworks have begun in Main Road, Kesgrave, as two weeks of pedestrian crossing work takes place.

The work, which started on Monday, will feature contractors carrying out work between 8pm in the evening and 6am in the morning and is due to continue for two weeks.

Temporary traffic lights will be in use between those times as contractors work to replace the crossing island near the junction with Cambridge Road.

Robert Whiting, Suffolk county councillor for the area who helped fund the improvements, said: “The creation of this new pedestrian crossing will provide a greatly improved and safer point at which to cross the busy Main Road.

“The bus stop and the farm shop will be much more accessible for local people and I hope this will encourage more residents to use these facilities.”

Work will not take place at weekends.
