MOTORISTS are advised to expect delays today as repair work gets under way to deal with a subsidence problem in part of Woodbridge Road, Ipswich.

The one-way section of the road between Orchard Street and Blanche Street was reduced to one-lane traffic yesterday as Anglian Water carried out investigations. However part of Woodbridge Road is now closed altogether as repair work commences began this morning.

Ipswich Borough Council has made a road closure order which came into effect from midnight.

A spokesman said: “Our contractors will begin work and this will mean closing the road - possibly for some days. We want to advise motorists that there will inevitably be delays, especially at peak times. We apologise for the inconvenience."

Diversions have been set up and sign-posted. Out of town traffic will use Soane Street, Westerfield Road, Valley Road and Sidegate Lane, while traffic will be required to turn right only when exiting from Bolton Lane on to St Margaret's Green at the traffic lights. Town-bound traffic will remain unaffected by the works as access to Argyle Street will be maintained.
