A busy road will be temporarily closed next week with traffic diverted as overnight works are carried out on a bridge.

Motorists and mariners are being warned to expect delays next month as two sets of separate "maintenance works" are carried out.

The A1117 Bridge Road in Oulton Broad, Lowestoft will be temporarily closed from the "Saltwater Way junction for a further 90 metres northbound" as Suffolk Highways carry out overnight works to Mutford Lock Bridge.

Traffic will be diverted as the A1117 Bridge Road is closed between 8pm and 6am as the works are being carried out overnight during these times between March 2 and March 4.

According to the Suffolk Roadworks map, the closure will be "in carriageway and both footways" but “pedestrians and cyclists will be able to use the adjacent footbridge.”
