Broken down vehicles are causing delays in Ipswich and on the A14


TRAFFIC is flowing freely again on the A14 after a broken down lorry caused earlier delays on the Orwell Bridge.


One lane of the eastbound carriageway was blocked and traffic was queuing between the Wherstead and Nacton junctions.

Meanwhile in London Road, Ipswich another vehicle broke down while travelling towards the A12 in London Road, between Chantry Park and the Copdock Interchange.

And a third incident on the A14 in Felixstowe also caused delays.

The broken down lorry partially blocked the westbound slip road at The Port of Felixstowe, junction 61, Felixstowe Dock gate two.
