Double roadworks cause frustration in Woodbridge

Temporary traffic lights have been out in place in Woodbridge while teams repair a burst water pipe which has caused a “foul smell” in the area.
Anglian Water have set up temporary two-way traffic lights in Woods Lane, which are likely to be in place until October 30.
The works come after residents complained online about a foul smell coming from a hole which has opened up in the centre of the road, leaving loose chunks of road surface on the carriageway.
However, the works coincide with a second set ongoing further along Woods Lane, near the junction with Valley Farm Road, which are being carried out by BT.
This has caused congestion in the area but the BT works should be completed by tonight.
