Ipswich: Subsidence is set to close Foxhall Road while town endures traffic chaos

AN Ipswich road is due to be closed this evening to allow engineers to investigate subsidence.

The problem has occurred in the middle of the carriageway on Foxhall Road, between the junctions with Henslow Road and Orwell Road.

A spokesman for Ipswich Borough Council said: “The Borough Council team will investigate the cause of the collapse and repair it, but it is not possible at this stage to say how long the stretch of road will be closed for.

“Diversions will be sign-posted and we apologise for any inconvenience caused to motorists and residents.”

Meanwhile, a traffic light failure on Woodbridge Road is also causing massive disruptions.
