WORK to transform Falcon Street and Dogs Head Street is continuing – and this picture from the top of the Buttermarket centre shows how the road is being changed.

It is the element of the £21million Travel Ipswich programme which is aimed at making life easier for public transport, pedestrians, and cyclists in the town centre.

Work on Falcon Street and Dogs Head Street is due to be completed next month – after which contractors will start rebuilding the Old Cattle Market bus station.

That work is due to continue until July, when attention will switch to the town’s other bus station at Tower Ramparts.

The current work is seeing cobbles laid to form a roundabout at the top of Silent Street, which should make the area more attractive to pedestrians and make life safer for walkers using Falcon Street.
