Delays on the A11 northbound have been downgraded to up to 30 minutes as traffic eased during the afternoon.
The Highways Agency traffic information service reports that hold-ups can be expected on the road between the A14 and Thetford northbound as work on the Fiveways roundabout takes place.
We will be monitoring the traffic on the road over the weekend and updating this story as developments take place.
There will be three weekend closures on sections of the Fiveways roundabout at Barton Mills in Suffolk starting from tonight, with drivers facing a lengthy diversion via Bury St Edmunds.
The Highways Agency says the closures are needed so they safely carry out a complete reconstruction of the roundabout as part of the long-awaited dualling work to the road.
The first closures will take place on the northbound section of the A11 on its approach to the Fiveways roundabout, as well as on the A1101 north (Bury Road) in both directions (green area on the graphic).
That work will start at 10pm. The A11 northbound will re-open at 6am on Monday. There will be no access to, from or within the green area.
The second closure will take place from 10pm on Friday, October 11 to 6am on Monday, October 14. It will affect the northbound A11 from the Fiveways roundabout and the A1065 (Brandon Road) in both directions (blue area on the graphic). There will be no access to, from or within the blue area.
The third closure will be on the southbound A11 to and from the Fiveways Roundabout, and the A1101 south (Mildenhall Road) in both directions (yellow area of the graphic). It will take place from 8pm on Friday, October 18 to 5am on Monday, October 21. There will be no access to, from or within the yellow area.
