The fault with the swing bridge at Oulton Broad South meant trains had to run at reduced speed – leading to delays of up to 20 minutes.
A spokesman for train operator Abellio Greater Anglia said: 'Train services between Ipswich and Lowestoft, via Saxmundham and Beccles are returning to normal.
'Following a fault with a swing bridge earlier today at Oulton Broad South all lines are now open.'
