Comments:These crossings will not address the congestion of the town so what is the benefit to town residents? Questions from Ipswich Green Party Meeting 29/07/2016 Where are the actual Plans/ Which roads are the crossings connecting to/from? The map isn't accurate enough to show outcomes for residents What is meant by East and West because the crossings are not, they are more specific, are they not (Q13/14) What would Option C offer on the Island and when did the Island become private? ( Older residents remember when there was a tree lined Promenade) With so much of the waterfront unoccupied, who is going to want the Island. Why do you think it will attract investment? What about existing businesses e.g FairLine - will they have to move? What about safety of pedestrians and cyclist with heavy traffic also using the crossing? With busier roads in a small area how will it improve traffic congestion? Where is the money to create a by-pass to the north which would take traffic out of the town and be more effective in reducing traffic congestion? Where is the money to improve Landseer/Holywells Road for residents, cyclists, pedestrians, and vehicles? And what will happen to the Wherstead Road; will that be improved to take more traffic? The survey has opened up more questions than answeres.
