The A140 at Earl Stonham is set to reopen at midnight – more than 30 hours after a 55-tonne crane overturned damaging the road.
Police officers were called to the scene shortly after 2.30pm on Monday, October 26, after the crane truck crashed near the A1120 junction.
Now a team from Suffolk Highways is set reopen the road after more than 30 hours of work.
A garden wall was completely demolished and teams from Suffolk Highways were on site throughout the night and day carrying out repairs to the damaged road.
A tweet from Suffolk Highways said: “The cleansing of the road and affected areas is almost complete. We look set to reopen the road by midnight tonight.
