PUBLISHED: 16:17 20 November 2019 | UPDATED: 19:10 20 November 2019
Parts of the A14 - including both carriageways of the Orwell Bridge - are to be closed over the next few nights as Highways England carry out planned repair works.
Junctions 56 to 58 westbound, including all slip roads, will be closed from 8pm to 6am over Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights.
The eastbound carriageway, between junctions 55 and 57, will also close during this period over Thursday night - meaning the bridge will be completely shut.
