Last sign of former Franciscan Way subway in Ipswich to be filled in

The last section of the former Franciscan Way underpass is to be finally filled in this month.
Suffolk County Council is to pour concrete foam into the subway ramp beside Franciscan House that has been sealed off ever since the roundabout was closed and converted into traffic lights in 2012/3.
You may also want to watch:
Most of the underpass was filled in as part of that work, but the ramp was left and has to be regularly cleared of water.
Now the concrete will be poured in during a three-week operation from August 19 - a week later than originally planned - and then it will be covered with topsoil and landscaped by the end of September.
Pavements will be closed during the work, but the roads should be largely unaffected - except when a skip is installed at the side of Franciscan Way at the end of September.
And the bus stop on Princes Street outside Franciscan house will be out of action later this month as it will be used for storage.
