Upcoming Works - A1117 Bridge Road, A146 Beccles Road, B1531 Victoria Road

20 May 2020

20th May to 23rd May 8pm to 5am


For your information, we are planning to carry out overnight road resurfacing works along A1117 Bridge Road, A146 Beccles Road and B1531 Victoria Road, Lowestoft
in the period between the 20 and 23 May 2020, during the hours of 8pm and 5am. This will require a temporary road closure so that we can carry out our works safely.
Traffic cones may also be placed to prevent on-street parking so our work site is unobstructed. 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. During the unprecedented measures we are all having to take at the moment, although we have scheduled this work to take place on the date shown, circumstances may
mean that the work start date may be changed. We will do our best to update you on any changes, but as you will appreciate, our resources are focused on keeping
Suffolk's highway network safe at this most challenging time as our service is critical to ensuring safe travel for our emergency and health services, and for those carrying
out essential tasks.

Home, But Not Alone

25 March 2020

Suffolk County Council support for people in need and for volunteers.

A new Suffolk focused community service has been set up to support people who need help during COVID-19 pandemic. Called 'Home But Not Alone', the service has been launched to help connect people who want to volunteer in their communities with neighbours who are most in need. The service will mean willing volunteers, charities, town and parish councils, community and religious groups can all log their details and offers of support on an app, while people who need help can phone to request support.
