The 20mph road closure scheme

Bildeston Parish Council and Suffolk County Council – 20mph road scheme works information commencing 18th – 22nd September 2023.

For your information, we are planning to implement a new 20mph speed limit by installing new signage and posts in multiple locations along High Street, B1078 Wattisham Road, Hadleigh Road and Bildeston Road. Towards the end of the work, an overnight road closure will be in place to install a high friction surface and new road markings. The works are programmed to take place between 18 and 22 September 2023. For the safety of our workforce and members of the public, temporary traffic signals and road closures will be in operation.
