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

Comments:Cycling should be considered throughout this development. Lowering of congestion can be achieved by encouraging more cycling and less driving in and around Ipswich. The current provision for safe cycling for anyone other than a thrill speaking professional cyclist is practically non-existent in Ipswich so any new development must consider provisions for fast transport utilising non-congestion and pollution causing transport methods such as cycling and walking. For the record I do own a car but wouldn't mind my journey by car being slightly more difficult if the rest of my days in Ipswich were safe and pleasant without dangerous roads to walk and cycle next to. Thank you.
