Traffic congestion on A14 following three vehicle crash


There was severe disruption on the A14 at the Orwell Bridge this evening after a three vehicle crash on the westbound carriageway just before the bridge.

A Vauxhall Corsa and two Ford Focuses were involved in the crash at around 5.20pm near the Nacton interchange, resulting in major delays.

An ambulance was called to the scene of the crash however no injuries were reported.

The road has now cleared and traffic is returning to normal.


  • Why did it take 2 hours to report the "news"? Surely if you gave the report soon after it happened most people could have avoided the issue by traveling through Ipswich.
