    Northern Bypass for Ipswich

    by sl_watchfull in Northern BypassJan 10, 2016 with 547 replies and 548 views.

    It has be suggested that we bring this subject up again--can we have your views on this and the reason why--if the Orwell bridge shut down the Valley road gets grid locked--if the big expansion comes about North of Westerfield--it will get worst--I can enlarge upon this but will wait to see what reaction there is forthcoming to this post.< This in an archive of the original post by Watchfull on Streetlife. >

    Latest reply: I to went to the Headlam group consultation and I agree 100% with what Mass R have said-- I was lucky enough to have a chat with the gentleman who will be managing this new warehouse-- I did ask him why the HG was not interested in the B&Q...

    Northern Bypass: Martlesham Heath Retail Park

    by dan5 in Northern BypassAug 13, 2017 with 0 replies and 181 views.

    With the growth of retail parks in the Greater Ipswich area including Martlesham Heath Retail Park to the North East of Ipswich and East of Kesgrave, do we need a Northern Bypass to support the development?307We shouldn't forget that Martlesham Heath is a village built not so long ago on an old RAF base - and the industrial retail units in Beardmore Park were pretty bad and run down until rather recently. There was no Next - it was Focus...

    Ditch The Car!

    by dan5 in Northern BypassApr 6, 2017 with 1 replies and 97 views.

    Ipswich Star has their "Ditch the Car" campaign... so much for supporting a Northern Bypass!Should we all cycle, walk or use public transport?!

    Latest reply: Ditch the Star. I would, this latest campaign is enough, but sadly I did it a few months ago, and really not missed it at all. I certainly don't feel any less informed. It was probably as good for my health as is a walk into town would be and the...

    Northern Bypass Car Sticker Vinyls

    by ipswichltd in Northern BypassFeb 25, 2017 with 8 replies and 92 views.

    Watchfull was kind enough to suggest producing car stickers to get the word out there!Various different kinds exist - car stickers, vehicle vinyl, bumper stickers and window vinyls / window stickers.Window stickers (well vinyl) are probably the better option). Does anyone know any suppliers? I will look around. Once with a design it is either buy an batch order of 100 or 1000 (whichever is the Minimum Order Quantity, MoQ) with a...

    Latest reply: I am ordering a few item samples with a UK supplier I found to check out quality. They seem pretty reasonable and allow minimum order quantity of 1 unit with stepped discount for more orders. This will allow (hopefully) an average to get middle...

    Storm Doris and Ranelagh Road closure: ultimate chaos?

    by Ipswi in Northern BypassFeb 23, 2017 with 18 replies and 91 views.

    With winds between 60-70mph forecast, can the Ipswich road network cope with a key road closure both in town and the TEN-T A14 Orwell Bridge being closed due to high winds from Storm Doris?

    Latest reply: I am getting mixed feedback this morning - some people very angry about yesterday and others who have said the diversion route was well planned and kept traffic moving (compared to 3 months ago) even if very slow.There seemed to be less...

    Ben Gummer: We need a Northern Bypass!

    by northernbypass in Northern BypassMar 14, 2017 with 13 replies and 78 views.

    The cat is out of the bag. Ben Gummer disappoints his dad by letting slip on BBC Radio Suffolk yesterday morning...We need a Northern BypassWhat he meant to say, was a "Northern Route".Ben Gummer interviewed around 8am on Mark Murphy, about new Cornhill plans. 

    Latest reply: Not even the local elections are going to make an impact as arguably it isn't the county's problem but the borough. So a slim but unrealistic chance for some councillor to make a difference as part of a campaign just to get elected.They did...

    Streetlife have closed our NBP debate down which is their policy to do so after six mouths-- and I think we ought to thank Streetlife for allowing us to run for that length of time-- should we keep this continuation going at least until we get the results of the talks taking place-- of which should be completed by this autumn as promised by the SCC-- the talks are taking into account, the fringe development, the road problems of Ipswich,and...
