Motorists can expect delays with the start of major roadworks in Sudbury town centre next month.

The week-long programme will see four-way traffic lights installed in Great Eastern Road on April 8, with work scheduled to finish by April 16.

It is being carried out by Cadent, which owns, operates and maintains the gas distribution network in East Anglia.

The company said the work was to install new gas mains.

“We need to replace ageing gas mains with tough new plastic pipes which should help ensure the local community keeps on enjoying safe and reliable gas supplies for many decades to come,” a spokesman said.
