Ipswich: Fill in our traffic survey online!

IPSWICH: Not fit for purpose – let alone the 21st Century.

That’s the overwhelming feeling among the unprecedented number of readers who have responded to our traffic survey.

We’ve seen a torrent of reaction to our latest poll and have so far struggled to find many positive assessments of Ipswich’s weary infrastructure.

A recently announced �25million plan, aimed at easing the situation and making “Ipswich fit for the 21st Century”, has been widely discredited by those who regularly negotiate the town’s traffic system.

Roads linking the town centre with the railway station and Waterfront are to be rebuilt to make life easier for pedestrians.

And a new system of traffic lights will be designed to improve the flow in and out of the town centre.

But, while most of you support the idea in principle, the scheme’s delivery has been met with general cynicism.

Readers commenting on the survey oppose what they see as wasteful, with criticism of the rebuilding of bus stations and introduction of a state-of-the-art computerised traffic management and information system.
