Ipswich: Severe delays as motorists attempt to get to work on time

HUNDREDS of motorists were caught up in heavy traffic this morning as vehicles filled the length of Wherstead Road in Ipswich.

The congestion on the busy town road caused tail backs as far as Bourne Hill, near to the Wherstead interchange.

One motorist said the delays meant his journey into work was more than doubled.

He said: “It could me about 30 or 40 minutes to get in to work today because of the traffic, and for a journey which normally takes about ten minutes.

“I was looking to see if there were any road works or crashes, but there was nothing, it is just the usual traffic at that time of day in that area.

“I think it is all a knock on effect caused by the changing of the Duke Street roundabout.”
