Nelson Road is due to be shut until 3.30pm on December 5, with drivers in the town redirected along Spring Lane and Cauldwell Hall Road.

The Suffolk Highways team will be resurfacing the tarmac to maintain the road.

In a tweet, Suffolk Highways said: “Nelson Road, Ipswich will be closed on December 5 between 9.30am and 3.30pm, to carry out carriageway resurfacing works.

“Please follow the diversion.”

The closure will not impact local businesses in Spring Lane and Woodbridge Road, with the opening hours of The Fat Cat, Sainbury’s Local and Barclays bank unaffected.

Single and double yellow lines run along Caldwell Hall Road and Spring Lane, so additional traffic should not have to navigate street parking on residential roads.

A full list of the planned roadworks for the town can be found on the Suffolk Highways website.

The temporary closure is just one of the planned roadworks designed to reduce potential travel problems and congestion on Ipswich roads.
