According to the Suffolk Roadworks map "delays are likely" as both sets of water works are carried out.

Travellers using First Eastern Counties Buses are being warned of the temporary closure of London Road South.

A First bus spokesman said: "London Road South, Lowestoft will be closed for Anglian Water Scheme works from March 1 to March 17.

"The road will be closed between Grosvenor Road and Freemantle Road. 

"Services will therefore be unable to serve the lower section of London Road South and will be diverted from London Road South/Long Road via Carlton Road and Tom Crisp Way to Asda and line of route."

The works in south Lowestoft starting next Wednesday come as sections of three roads on the northern side of Lake Lothing are temporarily closed from next week amid the continuing third crossing works.

Works will be carried out on Denmark Road, Peto Way and the southern end of Rotterdam Road "between the Wickes roundabout and 268 Denmark Road" between March 1 and August 31.
