A major Ipswich road will close again today in preparation for an abnormal load to leave the Port of Ipswich.

The load weighing over 460,000kg is due to leave Ipswich this morning.

Wherstead Road will be closed from 6.45am so that the transformers can cross the bridge.

The load will cross over the Bourne Bridge at around 7am today, Sunday, October 28, and head towards Bramford.

Wherstead Road was closed yesterday, Saturday October 27, for over eight hours as construction of a temporary bridge was carried out.
