With Cadent carrying out the work between Monday, May 20 and Friday, May 24, part of the road will be temporarily closed and a diversion route will be put in place.
According to the Suffolk Roadworks map, "delays are likely" while the work is carried out.

"Work is scheduled to be carried out between May 20 and May 24 and to enable the work to be completed safely and promptly a road closure will be implemented.
"The traffic management was carefully planned and agreed with the Highways Authority in line with their requirements."
