The road, which passes Diss Golf Club, is a busy thoroughfare for traffic heading between Diss and the A143 without having to use the A140.

The work by Suffolk County Council will sees the removal and re-applying a new waterproofing system on the bridge deck, resurfacing of the carriageway, laying new kerbs and refurbishment of the metal railings on the side of the bridge.

The project will be working around a high pressured gas main and part of the road closure period is to allow for potential work by gas supply company Cadent.

Diversions will be in operation during the road closure but access to pedestrians and cyclists will be maintained.
