A rail replacement bus service will be in place for two days next month as Network Rail makes improvements to a bridge on the East Suffolk Line.
Network Rail will be replacing wheel timbers, which are used to support the track, on a rail bridge that crosses the River Deben in early March.
Network Rail says replacing a total of six timbers - three pairs - these timbers before they deteriorate further will prevent the need for speed restrictions.
A rail replacement bus service between Saxmundham and Ipswich will be in place from March 6 and 7.
Ellie Burrows, Network Rail’s route director for Anglia, said: “Running a safe and reliable railway is my absolute priority, and this work is essential to prevent delays and cancellations on the East Suffolk Line.
