Works to repair a road which has been shut since November are expected to start in June. 

Suffolk Highways has been carrying out investigations into how to repair The Street in Aldham over the past few weeks, following the collapse of the road. 

The carriageway has been shut since November 19 after it gave way.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk Highways said it is hoped the road can be opened by the end of July, with solutions for the repair being finalised.

She said: "Whilst we haven’t yet confirmed a start date for the repair works, we are working towards an on-site start in June with an expected six-week construction programme.

"It is hoped that these works can be completed, and the road reopened by the end of July 2024.

"We thank the community for their patience and apologise for the ongoing inconvenience this is causing residents of Aldham and Elmsett." 

The closure has impacted residents and businesses in the village. 

Sasha Lawrence, who owns the Elmsett Village Stores, said revenue had dropped by 37% in January.
