Abnormal load to Eye Airfield starts latest journey from Ipswich, causing closures and diversions
What Suffolk County Council has called ‘load 2, part’ left Old Ipswich Road, Claydon at 6.30am this morning, making its way down Old Norwich Road and onto Bury Road.
Rolling road closures will then be installed along the A14 as the load travels west along the eastbound carriageway.
The load will be briefly held at the Claydon interchange to allow traffic through before continuing to the A140 junction.
The A140 will be closed at the A14 interchange and A143 Scole roundabout, whilst a diversion will be set up using A143 and A14 via Bury St Edmunds and vice versa.
Local traffic will have access either side of the A140.
There will also be a hard closure point at Brockford Bridge from 6.30am.
