Benefits

The completed scheme will drive regional economic growth, creating 3000 jobs at the Airfield Industrial Estate.

Once completed the scheme will allow all road users to use the A140 and also get to Eye and the industrial estate much easier.

Adding two new roundabouts and an access road will future proof this stretch of road whilst supporting the region’s economic growth and improving journeys through more reliable trip times and a more modern road layout.

Will there be road closures and diversions?

We will need to have some occasional road closures to progress the works. These will be at weekends or night time and will be carefully planned to minimise disruption with any closures widely publicised and shared well in advance. We are using a number of channels to inform our stakeholders.

This website, our A140 Facebook page, newsletters and Suffolk Council Twitter feed will be used to keep as many people as possible with up to date information.
