QUEUES quickly disappeared on the A14 near Felixstowe late this afternoon as the port re-opened for business.
As the wind died down, container yard managers announced it was safe for the quayside cranes to once again resume work.
Operations were able to restart in both the rail and container terminals and once the in-gates opened lorries were able to move off the dual carriageway.
Earlier the A14 Port of Felixstowe Road had been turned into a giant lorry park as part of Operation Stack to accommodate trucks after gales closed the port.
