Major roadworks coming soon to A14 Nacton Road Interchange

Posted By:

To quote the legal notice that appeared on the lampposts along the section of Nacton Road between the Thrasher Roundabout and the A14:

Ipswich Borough Council intends not less than 7 days from the date of this notice to make an Order under Section 14 of the Road Traffic Regulations Act 1984. The effect of this will be to close Nacton Road Underpass (the section under the A14 bridge), Nacton Road between the Ransomes Way/Bluestem Road roundabout and the Nacton Interchange, the Slip Road from A14 east-bound to Nacton Road/Underpass and the Slip Road from A14 west-bound to Nacton Road/Underpass. These closures (not all of which will be in operation simultaneously) are required to enable the overhead power line from Cliff Quay to Felxistwoe and Martlesham to be diverted and then for Nacton Road to be resurfaced.

Provision will be made for the passage at all times of pedestrians and cycles. The alternative routes for vehicles will be (A) (west-bound from Nacton Road: via A14 east-bound Nacton Road Slip Road - A14 east-bound - A14/A12 Interchange - A14 west-bound; (B) (from Nacton village) via west-bound A14 Slip Road - A14 west-bound - Whersted Road Interchange - A14 east-bound; (C) (from A14 west-bound) via A14 - Wherstead Road Interchange - A14 east-bound; (D) via Nacton Road - Ransomes Way - Felixstowe Road - A14/A12 Interchange and vice-versa.

This Order will be in force for not more than 6 months from 23 June 2006 or until the said works have been completed, whichever is earlier. However, it is anticipated that the works will be completed within approximately 4 months from 23 June 2008
