Emergency road closure near middle school in Stowmarket
A road in Stowmarket has been closed for emergency works due to a void under the surface.
Walnut Tree Walk, which passes by Stowmarket Middle School, will be closed today while Suffolk Highways deal with the void, which is caused when material in the road base has either deteriorated or been washed away, leaving it unstable.
The road is expected to reopen at around 3pm today.
Other roadworks have just started in Stowmarket town centre, kicking off two months of consecutive works.
Ipswich Street will be improved over the next five weeks by Suffolk Highways.
