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

Comments:Only in Suffolk would you decide to reduce congestion near the town centre and on the by-pass by directing more traffic through residential streets. According to your ill-thought out plans, virtually all cross town traffic from the Mildenhall, Stoke Park, Thorington park and Probably much of pinewood would travel through Luther Road & Station St to the new bridge. As both street already have traffic calming measures which have little effect. (apart from turning Croft St into a rat run) I cannot see what other measures you take in that area. Its also the main pedestrian route for school children to Hillside and Stoke High and also has a children's playground along side it. The Travel Ipswich Scheme was supposed to relieve congestion in the town centre but has been an object failure and I suspect this scheme in its project form will meet the same fate and it will move the congestion to residential streets instead of largely non residential ones.
