IPSWICH is to get a new landmark near the town's railway station.
The National Lottery has granted £26,500 for a new sculpture beside the River Orwell between Princes Street bridge and the
railway bridge over the river.
The sculpture will be clearly visible from the station and the Princes Street bridge, and alongside the cycle path which runs beside the river.
The Ipswich River Action Group has already been in discussions with artists about creating the sculpture which should be a new landmark for people arriving in the town.
It will be created by artist John Atkin – who specialises in large works of art, and should be visible from trains sitting in the railway station.
