Motorists are being warned to expect delays as a road is set to be temporarily closed for a series of overnight works.

Openreach will be carrying out works in south Lowestoft from this evening (Monday) for a week-and-a-half, with an overnight road closure in place.

According to the Suffolk Roadworks map "delays are likely" as the work is carried out on Mill Road in Kirkley from 9pm on Monday, November 13, until 5am the next morning.

The works will then continue between 9pm and 5am each evening, until 5am on Wednesday, November 22, with a road closure in operation.

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

A First bus spokesman said: "Mill Road, Lowestoft will be closed between 9pm and 5am each evening, from Monday, November 13 to Wednesday, November 23 for BT Works. 

"Service X2, X21 and X22 will therefore be unable to serve Asda and will be diverted ahead and along London Road South to line of route."
