Visitors to a popular nature reserve are being offered alternative car parking arrangements as three weeks of roadworks begin.

With Suffolk Highways carrying out works on behalf of the county council, it will see Burnt Hill Lane in Carlton Colville, Lowestoft temporarily closed.

Work is set to be carried out daily between 9am and 3pm from Monday to Friday for the next three weeks, with Burnt Hill Lane closed between June 12 and June 30.

With the closure in place for the repair and maintenance work, "delays are likely" according to the Suffolk Roadworks map.

It states: "Installation of new pipes, gullies, soakaways and associated infrastructure, followed by reinstatement works as required."
