Travel latest: Traffic flowing after earlier delays on A14

Traffic is flowing normally on the A14 near Ipswich following delays earlier this morning.

There were reports of slow traffic on the westbound carriageway near Copdock between junctions 56 and 55 due to roadworks.

A spokeswoman for the Highways Agency said that the delays were as a result of work to improve the Copdock Interchange.

She said: “The work will be carried out 24 hours a day and will continue for seven months.

“During the work a temporary 40mph speed limit will be in force at both junctions, with a 50mph speed limit on the junction approaches.
