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

Comments:The concern is that a crossing over the new cut would would have little impact on through traffic. A swing bridge upgrade would reduce the efficency of the lock and a crossing outside the log would have to be a lifting bridge or a large amount of trade would be lost in the dock. Also my concern is for the Ipswich sea cadets who could be heavily negatively impacted by the proposals
