A road in west Suffolk is to close for six weeks as part of upgrades to water mains in the area. 

Eriswell Road in Lakenheath will shut next month due to Anglian Water works. 

The water company said it is making improvements to its network, which has "come to the end of its life".

Closures will be in place from Thursday, July 25. 

Drivers are being asked to divert along the B1112, A134 and A1065.

A spokesman for Anglian Water said: "The closure will be from just north of the entrance to Eriswell Hall to just north of Caudle Farm.

"Any homes or businesses within the road closure will have access to their properties via the southern part of the closure at the Eriswell Hall end."
