ADVANCED WARNING - ROAD CLOSURE

A section of Main Road, Somersham will be closed from 29 July until 13 August for works by Vodaphone

I have spoken to Suffolk Highways to gather more information about the closure

The road will be closed as detailed by the RED on the maps - ACCESS ONLY TO PROPERTIES will be allowed during this time

In terms of an alternative route, Suffolk Highways have to suggest roads of a similar grade are used (shown with the PURPLE line)

However, those with local knowledge, can see that access to the pub is still possible by taking the Valley Road, Nettlestead Road and Hall Lane route

I explained to Suffolk Highways, that not only will the businesses in Somersham be affected, but also it was Harvest time and will cause inconvenience for those associated

The phone number for John Henry Group (who are carrying out the work) is 01954 288011

The maps showing the closure can be found at https://suffolk.roadworks.org/

I hope this information is useful to you all and hope we will still see you at the Duke of Marlborough

Kind regards
