AS work to turn the Princes Street/Civic Drive roundabout into a light-controlled junction continues, Star photographer Lucy Taylor took this picture from the roof of the Willis building that overlooks the site.

The last parts of the former nightclub on the site have now been cleared away and the hole is being filled in ready to be levelled early in the new year.

Once this is all brought up to the level, the top will be surfaced and traffic lights installed. The junction should be completed by the end of April next year.

  • Well said Andrew - one of the only parts of Ipswich not congested by lights soon will be a traffic nightmare giving more power to the "keep cars on the A14" brigade !!!!

  • The roundabout never caused any congestion but when they finish the work and turn on the traffic lights there will be.
