Information events to take place to inform people about resurfacing the A14

The Stowmarket Leisure Centre, where one of the three information events about resurfacing the A14, will take place later this month.

Three information events are due to take place in Woolpit, Elmswell and Stowmarket to help inform people about work that is due to be carried out on the A14.

It’s being organised by National Highways who are planning to resurface a bumpy stretch of the carriageway between junction 47a Haughley to junction 49 Tothill interchange starting next month.

The work is due to start on February 7 and is expected to be completed by the summer next year.

The existing concrete road surface will be removed and will be replaced with asphalt.

“This will proved a safer, smoother and quieter road surface which is easier and quicker to repair and has a 40 to 50-year linespace,” said National Highways.

To minimise disruption they will install a contraflow system so they can keep one lane open in each direction most of the time but there will be some overnight closures of the road when the work begins and when the contraflow is changed.

They added: “Due to the nature of the work there will be some noise and light disturbance. We aim to keep disruption and noise to a minimum and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.”

The information events will take place on the following days:

Thursday, January 26, 1pm to 8pm, at St Mary’s Church, Rectory Lane, Woolpit.

Friday, January 27, 1pm to 7pm, at the Wesley Chapel, School Road, Elmswell.

Saturday, January 28, 10am to 4pm, at the Stowmarket Leisure Centre, Gainsborough Road, Stowmarket.
