Do you have any further comments or concerns about the location and/or operation of the crossings?

Comments:Waste of time and money. Ipswich is a nightmare for driving this will make it far worse. Spend the money on a northern bypass which will be much more efficient at reducing conjestion. All of your questions are geared to give some kind of response in favour to what you want to do. The questions are biased and unfair. Increasing parking charges will only make people look elsewhere to shop as charges are already too high. What's the point in spending more money on the dock when you can't even afford to remove the monstrosity of the empty unfinished tower block that can be seen for miles around. You have all of the wrong priorities. It's like "what can we waste money on next"
