Drivers are advised to exit at junction 43 and travel along the A143 to Scole, before travelling south on the A140 to re-join the A14 at junction 51.

Project manager Kevin Barry said: “We will soon be starting our resurfacing scheme on the A14 between Bury St Edmunds and Elmswell.

"The scheme will provide safer and smoother journeys for drivers once complete on this busy section of the A14.”
