      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 Dan Rail Station bus shelters delayed due to installation problems by Dan.

      Already many months overdue, another hurdle has been hit. The bus shelters due to be installed at the brand new renovated Ipswich Rail Station forecourt will not be installed until after the General Election! Perhaps, not until the Summer months. Street lighting, fencing and bus shelters are all pending projects, as the station forecourt remains incomplete and unfinished. Ben Gummer was able to influence additional trees to be installed along th…

    • Profile photo of Dan Ipswich Railway Station Forecourt by Dan.

      I went into the forecourt of Ipswich Rail Station this morning….Unless I am mistaken by perception, the current incomplete design looks nothing like it.Bus Stop area looks larger than the taxi rank area – when it should look rather equal – is there enough room for the bus shelters on pavement? The Improved Pedestrian Access area (public realm) doesn’t seem that large – by this design it takes up 45% of the great…

      Not much more than 3 years after the remodelling of Tower Ramparts Bus Station as part of Suffolk County Council’s Travel Ipswich scheme, there are plans to remodel it to ease congestion of bus stops.
