ROADWORKS will close a road in Orford for much of next month.

Work will take place on Hallfields Road from the A50 Orford Green to the junction of Withers Avenue from February 6.

It is part of traffic calming measures to stop speeding motorists in the area.

The work will take five weeks to complete and will see speed bumps added.

They will run between 8am to 6pm on Monday to Friday and 9am to 1pm on a Saturday, as and when signed on site.

Access will be under the control of the relevant contractor for the duration of the works.

A council spokesman said: "The alternative route for vehicles will be via Withers Avenue, Smith Drive and the A50 and the alternative route for pedestrians via the opposite footway. The restrictions are required to facilitate highway improvement/traffic calming works."
