Delays are being reported in east Ipswich this morning as Woodbridge Road East remains closed.
Police were called to the road at around 12.45pm, after a six inch water main flooded and damaged the road.
The damage to the road has resulted in the closure of the road.
Anglian Water said yesterday they expected to have the road back to normal by tomorrow morning.
The road closure, coupled with the closure of Cauldwell Hall Road, is causing severe disruption for motorists coming into Ipswich between the mini roundabout for Cauldwell Hall Road and the A1214 roundabout.
Yesterday, Antony Innes, from Anglian Water, said: “We are sorry for any disruption caused by a burst six inch water main on Woodbridge Road East, Ipswich (on Monday), which has meant a section of the road is closed and around 20 properties are without water.
“Engineers were on site within an hour of the burst being reported and were able to quickly stop the leak, by around 2.30pm. Repairs to the pipe are underway.
