    Ipswich Society reports that on Monday work will begin on paving Key Street. This will involve 12 weeks of roadworks - with Key Street having alternating closure of one lane while the work goes ahead.

    No doubt this not completely necessary work (the lack of weed control has created this problem) is a result of the Wine Rack plans and Quay Place renovation.

    Update:



    So, they are building yet another crossing on what is one of Ipswich's most vital traffic systems from East to West. A wide toucan and ASL will lose up to three car spaces - the crossing will be in heavy usage at peak times if the Wine Rack is complete and if gets well occupied. They are wanting an Upper Orwell Crossing but if we don't get it (fingers crossed) then Ipswich has gone through another round of screwing up our already restricted road network.

    Further update (from Ipswich Society):-



    Looks as though (if I am understanding this correctly) an additional set of lights will enter the Star Lane gyratory. I am not sure if they mean whilst the traffic has stopped for people to cross it will be easier for them to join that section - which would be very much down to chance - or whether the lights will be on a timer/vehicle detection system... this is only likely to push traffic onto the other side of the gyratory at peak times creating congestion.
