Keeping Ipswich moving

Princes Street/Civic Drive new junction

What is the project all about?

The Travel Ipswich project aspires to improve traffic management and promote smarter travelling choices eg bus, train, walking and cycling, to address the main transport issues facing Ipswich in the future.  Click here for some more background information.


The scheme is aimed at improving travel for all users of the town whether they be vehicle users, cyclists, pedestrians, taxi or bus passengers.  The funding for the scheme came primarily from the Department of Transport for the purposes of development of the town.  An important part of the scheme is provision of information about traffic congestion and actual bus times and cycle routes available.  This will allow people to make informed decisions on how to get into and around the town.


The project should be completed by autumn 2015. Within this site you will find details of schemes being carried out at present, information of future works and also the many schemes that have already been completed.  Many of the pages contain plan diagrams.  These plans can be enlarged or printed by placing the cursor at the bottom/centre section of the plan and selecting the relevant icon.  Plans can also be rotated by right clicking on the diagram and selecting 'rotate clockwise.'
