WORK to introduce a traffic calming scheme in Orford will finally begin next week.

Residents of Smith Drive, Hallfields Road, Withers Avenue and Hallows Avenue have long complained about road safety in the area.

And a council consultation in autumn 2018 indicated 'clear support' for traffic calming in the area.

Work will start next Monday, February 24, and start with speed cushions being introduced throughout the area.

Pedestrian crossings will also be introduced.

Then, work on pavements, kerbs, the carriageways and road markings will take place.

Most closures will be during the day between 9.30am and 3.30pm with traffic lights put in place.
