From 12 March - temporary closure of part of NCR1

cycle networkPart of the  High Woods Country Park NCR1 route into Broadlands will be closed for up to 2 weeks commencing 12th March.

The area approximately 500m north of the country park’s Broadlands entrance (off Ipswich Road) will be closed to repair a short section of stream bankside running alongside the NCR1 that requires stabilising due to erosion. Without the works there is a real threat to the integrity of the surface of the adjacent cycle path. Closure and diversion signs will be provided at both ends of the section of the path. If you want to work out your own alternative route, use the ECC cycle map
