RUSH-hour traffic was delayed after a lorry jack-knifed and overturned leaving the Bury bound A14 closed.
The incident happened at around 2am today on the carriageway between Woolpit and Bury St Edmunds.
The westbound carriageway was closed shortly afterwards and re-opened around 8.45am.
During the closure traffic was diverted onto the A1088 at Woolpit while tree surgeons worked to clear trees from the road that had been knocked over in the accident.
The Highways Agency tree surgeons were originally expected to take around three hours, but a spokesman for Suffolk police said the work will be put off until later.
The spokesman said: “The road has now been re-opened at Rougham and the rest of the work to clear the fallen trees will be carried out at a time that is less disruptive.”
