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

Comments:Can't see why you need to waste money on 3 separate crossing when the one at A would do the job. But as the was no one to talk to about it still unsure. SCC has already wasted 21 million on Transport Unfit for Ipswich just giving Ipswich more unworking traffic lights. Look at how many time Handford Rd Portman Rd Junction has been closed or dug in last 4 years. The Councillors decided who do not has Ipswich interest at heart all were from towns like Felixstowe & Bury St Edmunds which have benefited. SCC does not care about Ipswich or it problems.
