One of Newmarket's main routes on to the A14 will stay shut for the week as contractors build a new zebra crossing




One of Newmarket's main routes on to the A14 will remain closed for the rest of the week.

Bury Road, in Kentford, will be closed until Friday as Suffolk Highways build a new zebra crossing across the B1506.

The work is being done by the county council on behalf of Heritage Developments Ltd, who are building a new estate at the former Meddler Stud.

The closure between Station Road and Herringswell Road will be shut at all hours, with Suffolk Highways digging up parts of the road to place the new crossing.

Today a highways spokesman said: "To ensure the safety of both our operatives and members of the travelling public, the B1506 must remain closed 24 hours-a-day, as we will be excavating trenches the full width of the road in four separate locations.

"Please note, that all school buses will be provided with escorted access through our work site every morning and afternoon. In addition to this, Suffolk Highways plans to upgrade existing street lights on behalf of Kentford Parish Council.

"UK Power Networks will be onsite to assist, while Heritage Developments will be using the road closure to remove pedestrian refuge islands."

Drivers have been advised to follow diversion signs.
