CONCERN about more gridlock and misery for drivers has spurred more than 700 people to sign up against a proposed bus lane.
The new lane is planned for Bishops Hill, and more traffic lights are also set for the area.
But the changes on the cards have sparked anger among residents of nearby Rosehill Crescent and the Rivers estate.
As the Star revealed last month, a petition was launched after Ipswich Borough Council announced it wanted to change traffic arrangements in the area.

Butcher George Debman said today: "It was felt the whole concept was totally unnecessary and would only lead to more traffic gridlock misery.
"Instead of channelling all the traffic into a one-way system yet again, the council would be better off looking at developing other roads in the area, for example across the dock."

He said 99 per cent of people asked, signed the petition, and added the majority had not heard about the proposals.
He said: "Had the petition continued, then many more signatures would have been obtained, but it had to stop somewhere."
The petition was handed over by residents Mick Bradwell and Janet Sibley, to town councillors Liz Harsant and David Hale.
