Suffolk Highways have put an emergency closure in place along The Ravine, which winds its way down from the A47 Yarmouth Road jucntion – to Whapload Road.

A diversion is in place via the town centre – although East Suffolk Council are currently unable to confirm when the footbridge will reopen, and told us at East Suffolk One:”

The footbridge has been temporarily closed after an area of the railings were found to be loose during an inspection this morning. The footbridge has been secured and a temporary road closure is now in place while scaffolding is erected to enable repairs to be carried out. The road will reopen as soon as possible, however, we cannot confirm when the footbridge can reopen at this stage. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.”
