Flooding due to the thunderstorms and heavy rain that have hit the region has caused delays on the Norwich to London train line and has closed the A1066 at Diss.
The line between Stowmarket and Diss has been reopened after flooding made the railway unsafe.
Greater Anglia have warned there may still be delays to services.
The A1066 in Diss, between the A140 and the B1077 Stuston Road, has been closed due to flooding.
There is also slow traffic on the A140 at the B1077 Stuston Road junction.
