A road in an east Suffolk town is set to close for three weeks this month.

Garrison Lane in Felixstowe will close from Monday, June 10 to Monday, July 1 so workers can connect the existing town sewage way to the new Deben Fields development.

The Deben Fields development project is a 61-home eco-friendly housing project which is being built on the site of the old Deben High School.

"Access for 'Residents only' will be controlled with advanced warning signage and letters to be sent out prior to commencement of works."

Drivers have been warned of delays as a 2.3km diversion route will be in place through the town along the A1021 Orwell Road, Leopold Road, Crescent Road and Grove Road during the closure.
