A road on the outskirts of a west Suffolk town is set to close for nearly four months later this year.

The B1057 Haverhill Road, which connects Haverhill and Steeple Bumpstead in Essex, will shut from May 20 as a result of works by Anglian Water. 

According to one.network, the works will see repairs and maintenance completed. 

The stretch of road is scheduled to be shut until September 13. 

A spokesman for Anglian Water said a new 3.5km water mains pipe is being installed as part of a water supply resilience scheme that straddles the Suffolk and Essex border.
