Transport Revamp Will bring Jobs to Ipswich

Story here
Two bus stations re-built, new pavements and cycle routes and the synchronisation of traffic lights has to be better for the town.

Also, the redevelopment of the princes street roundabout is an excellent idea. As Guy McGregor, the county councillor with responsibility for transport, says ““No longer will people have to dive into the cavernous subway which is unfriendly and threatening.

“It is a vital part of a new link between the railway station and the town centre, which will encourage people into the town.”

People are complaining about it. Do they think that this

is better than this

The most ridiculous complaint in the Evening Star was by somebody called Paula Bell “Well I could think of better ways to spend it – like saving services that helps, children, elderly people, disabled and I could go on. What a waste.” Obviously Paula thinks it is better for children, elderly people and the disabled to go down the cavernous subway which is unfriendly and threatening than use a pedestrian crossing. She also must think that it’s better for children, elderly people and the disabled to use outdated bus stations with buses constantly moving around putting them at risk of being run over than for children, elderly people and the disabled to use a new modern bus station that can cope with the amount of buses. There are a few other comments by obvious Labour people in the Evening Star about it too.

Ipswich MP Ben Gummer is says he hopes the improved transport network would encourage new shops and businesses into the town centre, encouraging more people from outside the town to visit.

  1. “truth, we should already being enjoying the benefits of what is proposed. The project was first put to ministers several years ago but the previous administration dragged its feet and refused to make a decision. Then, as if by magic, the scheme gained initial (but unfunded) approval just hours before the General Election was called. What a coincidence!

    The trouble was, and as I pointed out at the time, the funding was not secure: Labour was planning to take the shears to capital expenditure and so not all of the schemes announced on election eve could have possibly been built. And yes, in case you were wondering, there were many others like ours in Ipswich, most of them – amazingly – in marginal seats.”
