Police have closed Barrowby Road at the Asda roundabout after a lorry damaged its tyres on metal studs.
The lorry collided with the studs – which are designed to protect pedestrians using the pavement on the junction with Sankt Augustin Way – just after 11am today (Monday).
Traffic has built up despite a diversion being in place. The road will reopen once the lorry has been recovered.
Motorists are advised to avoid if possible.
