For your information, we are planning to carry out road resurfacing
remedial works along A140, as detailed below. The works are programmed to
take place on 11 and 16 July 2022, working overnight between 8pm and 5am.
The road will be closed to ensure that we can carry out our works safely
and the temporary speed limit will remain in place between the dates
The first phase will involve the application of a regulating layer, which
will provide a level and smoother surface, to support the embedment of the
final surface dressing treatment. The regulating layer will need a few
days to settle before the surface dressing treatment.
A140 Norwich Road, Stonham Parva (from junction with Debenham Road to
A140 Turnpike, Stonham Parva
A140 Pains Hill, Stonham Parva
For the duration of the road closure, traffic will be diverted via A140,
A14, A134, A143, A140 and vice versa.
As we plan roadworks in advance, we schedule extra days to allow for bad
weather or other delays beyond our control. If we need to make major
changes to our work dates, we will update the information signs on site.
A plan showing the diversion route for these works is attached to this
email. When we close the road and put a diversion in place, the route
needs to be accessible to vehicles of all shapes and sizes. We make our
diversions as clear as possible by placing appropriate signing along the
route. The latest updates on our works can be found on our website at
"Temporary road closures for Suffolk Highways
and on One.Network<https://one.network/> website.
