Comments:This hair brained scheme may satisfy objective 1 but the sole beneficiary will be ABP who own the land. The scheme fails to satisfy option 2 and the preferred option will kill the waterfront. Fixed mast yachts currently have unrestricted access to the marinas in the wet dock. Your web site states: The opening section of the bridge would only need to open for the taller vessels, and these could be grouped together and sent through in a platoon. The bridge opening could be constrained to outside of peak periods and to be relatively infrequent. This is both impractical and totally unacceptable. Fixed mast yachts and larger motor boats will re-locate and I will be amongst the first. Money will not therefore be spent in local restaurants and shops. Your proposal also completely fails in respect of objective 4. The Orwell bridge was built to relieve the centre of Ipswich by keeping cars and HGVs on the A14. It seems you now wish to divert them into the centre if the town to relieve the bridge. Complete madness.
