The A140 at Earl Stonham has reopened more than 30 hours after a 55-tonne crane overturned, damaging the road.
The police were initially called to the scene shortly after 2.30pm on Monday, October 26 after receiving reports that a crane had crashed on the busy road, near to the junction with the A1120.
After the crane was put back on its wheels and removed from the scene, a team from Suffolk Highways worked for hours to repair damage on the road.
The crash also completely destroyed a garden wall, spraying debris across the road.
However a tweet from Suffolk Highways confirmed that the road reopened shortly before 10pm yesterday evening.
