A £60million plan to install a series of traffic lights on the A12 to the east of Ipswich has been unveiled by Suffolk County Council.

Earlier this week, the council launched a public consultation on the project, which it says will reduce congestion and improve traffic flow between the A14 junction at Seven Hills and the Woods Lane junction.

The scheme involves installing traffic lights on each of the roundabouts except for the Seckford roundabout, introduce a dualled portion between the Seckford and Dobbies roundabouts, create dedicated cycle networks and expand some of the roundabouts and approach lanes.

Suffolk County Council's cabinet member for highways, Andrew Reid, said the proposals had been developed by assessing traffic movements and demand along the A12.
