SIX hours of road chaos – but it's going to happen again and it's going to be worse.

As Ipswich returned to normal today after hours of gridlock misery, there were warnings that more chaos is inevitable.

Two separate accidents to the south of the town closed the A14 – forcing traffic to jam into the town centre, snarling almost every main route. And a power cut hit crucial traffic lights at a crucial junction.
