Hamilton Road will be closed overnight between Cobbold Road and Hamilton Gardens for the first two weeks of work. Bent Hill will then be closed overnight for the remaining week.

The times and dates of works may change depending on the weather conditions. If they do change, the information signs on site will be changed to keep residents up to date.

Hamilton Road and Bent Hill will be affected by the closures, excluding the weekends, from March 11 between 7pm and 5am.

Access to properties and businesses will be available at all times. If access is obstructed, people can speak to one of the site staff who will provide access as soon as it is safe to do so.

During the period of the Hamilton Road closure, traffic will be diverted via Cobbold Road, Ranelagh Road and Hamilton Gardens.

During the closure of Bent Hill, traffic will be diverted via Undercliff Road West, Convalescent Hill and Wolsey Gardens.

Suffolk Highways contractors will be excavating part of the carriageway and relaying the block paving along with replacing the bike racks. During the work, the hooped ‘no entry’ sign (situated at the top of Bent Hill) will also be replaced.

For questions regarding the works, call Suffolk Highways on 0345 606 6171.
