A stretch of the A14 will be closed overnights for two months while National Highways carries out planned works. 

Drivers are being warned of the closures that will start on Monday and run until June. 

According to the National Highways website, the eastbound carriageway will be closed between junction 43 at Bury St Edmunds and junction 47 at Woolpit while the works take place.

Works will be carried out between 8pm to 6am, weeknights only. 

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.”

While the eastbound carriageway is closed drivers will be diverted off the A14 at junction 43, travel along the A143 to Scole, then south on the A140 to rejoin the A14 at junction 51. 

While the road is closed National Highways will be replacing traffic signs, road markings and road studs.
