A section of the A14 in Suffolk will be closed on several occasions in June, National Highways has said.

Closures on the eastbound and westbound carriageways will take place between junction 47A and junction 49, near Stowmarket, allowing for the completion of a project which has taken more than a year to complete.

Work initially began on the stretch of road in 2023 and is now nearing completion in June following the removal, reconstruction and resurfacing of the road.
