The work to lay new drainage from Aldringham Lane to the Horse Pond is scheduled to begin on March 2nd, 2020. The work will take about 12 weeks to complete. John Rozier, from Suffolk Highways, has advised us that the work will be carried out in three separate phases and will require traffic signals on the main road (B1122) and the closure of Aldringham Lane.
Suffolk Highways have stated that the success of the work relies on the completion of the measures required upstream on the fields (North of Chandlers Way), and until these measures are agreed and completed there is the possibility of further flooding, or more likely blockages and silting up.
