Travel: Trains delayed but few traffic hold-ups

DRIVERS are facing few hold-ups on the region’s roads today, but rail passengers are dealing with a number of delays.

An earlier broken-down vehicle on the southbound A12 at junction 25 for the A120, the Marks Tey interchange, has caused some ongoing problems for motorists coming off on the exit slip road due to an earlier lane closure.

Meanwhile the work to correct subsidence on Ipswich’s Foxhall Road continues, meaning the road is closed off in both directions between the junctions for Henslow Road and Orwell Road.

Local diversions are in place, and bus route 67 will now travel along Derby Road and Felixstowe Road.

Traffic is also heavy on the northbound A12 past the Copdock interchange, junction 33.
