      We know the objective is to “axis switch” and create better linkage between the traditional town centre and Ipswich Waterfront. It has taken what seems like forever to improve the pedestrian and cycling links between the two – road infrastructure for cars and buses isn’t an option. As Ben Gummer would say, we have done a lot but there is still much more to do! This is ongoing and far from completion. I am someone who pre…

      When will roadworks in central Ipswich finally be totally completed? Is it the end of the Queen Street roadworks – or is this the latest art installation to arrive on the streets of Ipswich? The long drawn-out roadworks that may – or may not – be the final part of the Travel Ipswich project (depending on which council official you speak to) seems to be nearing its conclusion at the junction of Falcon Street and St Nicholas Street. But a sm…

    • Profile photo of Ipswi Ipswich: shabby and rundown cesspit hell hole by Ipswi.

      Just over 5 years ago Ipswich callers phoned up a BBC Radio Suffolk breakfast show presented by current Ipswich Central chairman Terry Baxter to give their views on the town. Ben Gummer MP was shocked and angered over people commented on how “shabby and rundown” the town is with others going to extremes calling it a “cesspit” and “hell hole”. Naturally the politicians didn’t listen to the concerns and di…

      More historical comments on the Upper Orwell Crossing (then Wet Dock Crossing). Ipswich Star has deliberately used the Wet Dock Crossing term early on (even with the switch of terms) to hide criticism… too bad on IPSWI we are displaying them all in one place for you to easily read. Government pledges £2 million for Ipswich wet dock link Peter, thanks for that background info. I am glad to see it’s only statue law and not natural law…

      Taking a look back to the year 2016 discussion on the Wet Dock Crossing to see what people thought of the project then.

      Should Colchester & Ipswich Museums demerge? This is a question I asked in a letter to David Ellesmere recently after learning the Ipswich Arts & Museums Trust (branded as I-AM) had been dissolved at Companies House. It has been mothballed. No more. This is something which really irritates us and many Ipswich residents… the I-AM branding was good and was a breath of fresh air. Something good to boost tourism and also good for resi…
