A14 closed tonight for emergency bridge repairs
The A14 eastbound will be closed from 8pm tonight to 6am tomorrow (Thursday) near Stowmarket for emergency bridge repairs.
Highways England say a routine safety inspection on the on the Hill House Viaduct this morning revealed problems in joints.
The agency says there will be a clearly signed diversion taking traffic from junction 49, through Stowmarket via the A1308 and A1120 to re-join the A14 at junction 50 (Cedars Interchange) to continue their journey.
Currently lane one (the inside lane) is closed on this eastbound stretch. Subject to how repairs go tonight, this closure may need to be implemented again tomorrow.
