Improvements coming for road
A POT-HOLE riddled Ipswich street which residents claim is more like a farm track than a road will be revamped in the spring. Glencoe Road, in Rushmere, has fallen into a poor state, with severe ruts appearing in places.

Glencoe Road, in Rushmere, has fallen into a poor state, with severe ruts appearing in places.
Councillors and residents demanded Ipswich Borough Council take action to improve the surface - and their calls have been heeded.
A spokesman for the borough council confirmed: “We are planning to resurface the road. This will take place in March or April next year.”
Rushmere resident and campaigner Alasdair Ross said: “If the council don't do anything about it soon, the problem will cost them even more money.
“It's not a busy road but there are a number of cars parked along here. And it could be very dangerous for someone on a bike.
