A village road that has been "undermined" by badgers will close for a week next month.
Emergency roadworks are already under way with two way traffic lights in use on Guildhall Lane in Wrentham, with motorists warned to expect delays.
But next month Suffolk Highways will temporarily close the road off the busy A12 for a week, with traffic being diverted.
The temporary closure will be in force along the "full extent of the road" with the works taking place between November 15 and November 19.
According to the Suffolk Roadworks map, "delays are likely" while the work is being carried out.
Repair work started at the beginning of October, with emergency two way traffic lights in operation, as Suffolk Highways said that the "road has been undermined due to badgers and is a threat to the safety of motorists."
Now a full road closure will be implemented on Guildhall Lane between November 15 and November 19 for the "repair of damaged road caused by badger activity."
