A broken down HGV is causing heavy traffic on the Copdock roundabout near Ipswich.
Suffolk Constabulary were called to the scene of the breakdown at about 1.10pm after reports of a lorry blocking the northbound carriageway.
Police have closed one lane of the road while officers wait for a recovery vehicle to collect the broken down HGV.
The lorry is expected to remain in place until about 4pm when the vehicle can be moved.
The northbound carriageway is experiencing long delays back to the slip road towards the village of Copdock.
The Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team tweeted to say: "We're currently down to one lane on the A12 northbound at Copdock Interchange, Ipswich, due to a broken down HGV and are currently awaiting mechanics to come and repair it.
"Please expect delays."
