Keeping Ipswich moving
What is the project all about?
The Travel Ipswich project aspires to improve traffic management and promote smarter travelling choices eg bus, 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 this autumn. There are a number of schemes which make up all the improvements across the town, and we have already started to see some real progress with two modernised bus stations, enhanced areas around St Margaret's Street, Old Cattle Market and Museum Street. Also, the unpleasant Civic Drive roundabout has been transformed into an aesthetically boosted area with safer on-street pedestrian crossings rather than the dismal subway.
