Motorists travelling through Lowestoft are being warned of possible delays from Wednesday this week because of major work to improve facilities at the town’s railway station.

From Wednesday, alterations will be made to the signal junction at Katwijk Way/Denmark Road.

The roadworks could last up to 10 days and will see temporary signals installed while they are being carried out.

A Suffolk County Council spokesman said: “Personnel will be on site to help minimise any delays where possible.”

The work on the signal junction is necessary to provide a new exit for buses and taxis leaving the interchange in to Denmark Road.

Suffolk County Council, Waveney District Council and rail franchise holder Greater Anglia are working together to develop a new transport interchange to improve bus, taxi, cycle and pedestrian access at the gateway to the town.

The £1million work, which is expected to be finished by July, includes resurfacing the car park and adjoining land to create an extra 70 marked spaces, redesigning the taxi rank and installing two modern bus shelters with real-time travel information boards.
