An update has been provided by Suffolk County Council on the pedestrian crossing works on the A143/The Street: 


Suffolk Highways Spokesperson, said:


“Working with BT and UKPN a solution has now been reached to resolve the safety issue identified at the beginning of the improvement works to relocate the pedestrian crossing along the A143 The Street, Gt Barton.

“Work will now begin on Monday 25 November for three weeks to remove the old crossing and install the new pedestrian crossing outside the Church Institute Hall. Temporary traffic signals will be in operation during this time followed by a full road closure along The Street between School Road and Church Road for two nights from Monday 16 December between 7:30pm and 5am for resurfacing and lining works. The division route for the road closure will be A143, A134, A11, A1066, A1088 Thetford Road and vice versa.


“Please do accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused by the delay in these improvement works.”
