A trader in a Suffolk seaside town has said a five-day closure of a bridge is too long.
The Highways Agency is carrying out a £2.3m refurbishment of the opening sections of the Bascule Bridge at Lowestoft Harbour.
A light-weight bridge for pedestrians and cyclists is in place, but vehicles are being diverted via Oulton Broad.
Ian O'Sullivan, who runs a tanning salon, said the closures have led to a downturn in trade.
He said: "I'm taking advantage of it and I've booked a holiday for a week.
"Yes, we will be open but my opening hours will be shortened through the hassle and chaos of it all.
"You have to get on with it at the end of the day, until someone builds a third crossing."
The road bridge is scheduled to reopen to traffic again at 0600 GMT on Thursday with the next closure planned in March.
The Highways Agency said the work was vital to ensure the long-term reliability of the bridge, and that the maintenance had been planned to cause the minimum amount of disruption possible.
