Nearly a mile of the A140 was closed for more than four hours today whilst engineers worked to repair a fault in overhead power lines.
UK Power Networks attended the scene in Earl Stonham where the A140 was closed from the junction with the A1120 down to the turn off for All Saints Road.
A spokesman said: "Power was switched off to 11 customers in Earl Stonham at 12.41pm today to allow for emergency repairs to replace a damaged piece of electrical equipment on Angel Hill.

"We apologise for any inconvenience caused."
Suffolk Highways put a diversion in place for the closure which was taking traffic, including HGVs, on to the A1120 and the A14.
Closures were expected to last until as late as 6.30pm but the road has now been reopened.
