There is heavy traffic on the A14 near Ipswich after a two-vehicle crash.

It happened between the junctions for Wherstead and Nacton at about 4.50pm.

At this stage there are not thought to be any injuries caused by the incident.

Four vehicles are involved and the fast lane of the eastbound carriageway is currently blocked, causing congestion.

There is a lot of congestion in the area and on several other routes out of the town and near the town centre.

Woodbridge Road, London Road, Birdge Street and Nacton Road are all experiencing very heavy traffic.

  • That's three times in the past week there has been some kind of problem with the A14 gridlocking the entire town. Last Wednesday, last Friday and now this Tuesday. I missed it tonight because I was working late but I think my record is 1hr15 minutes for a normally 20 minute journey. Something has to be done. This is happening far too often and causing total chaos.

  • IanW - same here. Funny how long it is taking people to realise that cycling is the answer to their moans and if they want to get somewhere fast, that's the solution.

  • Fast Lane? Do you, perhaps, mean the overtaking lane? This is one of the reasons accidents are caused, Oh no! I can't drive in the SLOW lane, I must be in the fast lane! Anyway the whole town was gridlocked, my journey home took four times as long, Ipswich planners, I salute you!!!
