Storm Dennis: High winds to close Orwell Bridge
Storm Dennis is expected to close a major A-road bridge for about 16 hours as high winds are predicted.
Highways England said it would start closing Orwell Bridge about 14:00 GMT.
The government agency said this would ensure motorists were safely clear by the time Storm Dennis hit Suffolk at about 15:00 GMT.
It said the wind was "likely to breach safe limits". The bridge was closed for 17 hours between 02:00 to 19:00 the previous Sunday, when Storm Ciara hit.
A diversion will be in place via the A1156, A1189 and A1214 through Ipswich.
"Drivers making journeys across the region should be aware of sudden gusts of wind and give high-sided vehicles, caravans, motorbikes, and bicycles plenty of space," a spokesman said.
