    • Profile photo of Ipswi The Upper Orwell Crossings a bridge too far? by Ipswi. 1 2

      From Ipswich Society newsletter Ipswich Society April 2017 (issue 207):- Clever politicians throw their weight behind projects that are likely to succeed and avoid those that will be a long time coming. Thus we can guess that the proposals to build additional bridges over the Orwell and the New Cut are likely to happen sooner rather than later.

    • Profile photo of Ipswi Ipswich Waterfront by Ipswi.

      Ipswich Waterfront: Time to pull the plug? For many the Ipswich Waterfront is a 21st century project but digging into the history a little, the project is over 30 years old with early steps in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and despite being the sole tourism focus for Ipswich town we have very little to show for it. Ever since the Star Lane gyratory was built, alternative uses for the Wet Dock were sought. This included early developments of re…
